Tottenham Hotspur defender Steven Caulker says he’d be more than happy to join Swansea City on loan this Summer.

Caulker played for Bristol City on loan in the Championship last season and played against the Swans twice.

A number of Championship clubs are believed to be interested in signing him on a temporary basis but the Swans look to be leading the chase as they can offer him Premier League experience.

Caulker told Sky Sports:

“A Premier League loan will be the best option for me next season and if something along those lines can happen this summer it would be great,”

“If I stay at Tottenham then so be it, but it all depends on what crops up and if it means going back on loan to a Championship club again then I will do.

“It is all about playing regular first-team games at my age, so hopefully something will happen this summer.

“Any sort of experience at Premier League level would interest me to be honest and I wouldn`t turn anything down at this stage.

“Obviously, I played against Swansea twice last season and they play some very good football, so if that was an option I`d be more than happy to go there.

“I wouldn`t see it as a drop down at all, so we will just have to wait and see if their interest turns into something concrete because I`d love to play Premier League football next season.”


Spurs boss Harry Redknapp also says Norwich City are interested, but he would have no problem in loaning him out to the Swans:

“We think Caulker`s got a great future but I would be happy to loan him out. He played at Bristol City last year on loan, did really well and had a great season for them.

“And I know Swansea want him – but so do Norwich and there are a couple of clubs in there. But, for sure, I`d let him go to Swansea – no problem.”
