Momentum is gathering regarding speculation that Steven Caulker is set to join Cardiff City in a record £9million deal.

The Spurs defender who is still just 21 has already represented England at senior level and could be heading for the White Hart Lane exit. This would also tie in with the news that Spurs are closing in on a deal for Steau Bucharest central defender Vlad Chiriches.

Wales Online are reporting that Caulker is already in Cardiff undergoing a medical with the Premier League newcomers and are close to completing a deal.  With Jan Vertonghen picking up an injury during the Barclays Asia Trophy, William Gallas’ release and doubts over Younes Kaboul’s fitness it’s a risky decision by Spurs and AVB to part with the promising Caulker.

Some Spurs fans have not taken too well to the news that Caulker could be set for an N17 exit with a move down the M4 with a return to the Principality after an earlier loan spell with Swansea City.
