  • Caulker to Leeds?

    Leeds United are rumoured to be preparing a bid of £1.5 Million for Steven Caulker.

    The defender was supposedly at the centre of a substantial bid from an unknown Scandinavian team, thought to have been Rosenburg, only a few months but it seems that he has now caught the eye of the Yorkshire club who are looking to strengthen at the back for this season.

    With Caulker out of contract next summer, it would seem that if this type of bid was to be made, the club would more than likely agree to it.

    The English transfer window closes tomorrow and with Celtic the only other club in Scotland that could realistically afford the one-time England cap, there could be more to this story as the hours count down.

    Interestingly enough, Yorkshire Evening Post's chief football writer Phil Hay was asked on Twitter bout there being any truth in the Caulker rumours and replied, “I don’t think so.”

    Caulker has only been at Dens Park for six-months and even though it would be a blow to lose the player, the fans are hoping that any sale will see the board freeing up money for McCann for replacing him and also adding to other areas of the park that we are lacking.

    The Scottish transfer window however remains open until August 31st.

    I'm not convinced any body will come in when Caulker goes, I truly hope however, if guys do come in, that they include a good striker and a left back who can defend.

      Yesterday, reports suggested that Leeds United were due to swoop for Caulker by lodging a £1.5 million bid but now there may be some more interest in him, especially from abroad.

      The Rangers have also been noted to have in interested in the defender.

      Following the loss of Jack Hendry to Celtic in January, Neil McCann swooped to bring in the one-time England cap in a surprise free transfer following his release from Queens Park Rangers. Though he was lacking match fitness, the big centre back’s experience was vital in Dundee staying in the Premiership last season. 
       
      Dundee have already knocked back a massive offer of around £2 million from Rosenburg for the defender's service back in April but that was mainly due to our precarious league position at the time. 
       
      If there is anything in these rumours and Dundee are to be involved in another big money transfer following on from the reported £1.5 million received from the sale of Hendry, then it would represent a fantastic bit of business by the club considering Caulker has only played twelve times for the Dee and has one-year left on his contract.
       
      Of course, Dundee fans would have to see any potential transfer fee invested back into the first team, especially to replace a key figure like Caulker.

      The former Tottenham, Cardiff City and Queens Park defender will most likely bring a wealth of experience to Dundee's defence.

      He has also played for Yeovil, Bristol City, Southampton and Liverpool on loan.

      Caulker also has international experience with England. He played eleven times for the U19s, ten times for the U21s and has one full cap for when he played and scored against Sweden in a friendly in 2012.
