Robins land young Spurs defender on loan

Published Add your comment

Bristol City have secured the services of Tottenham defender Steven Caulker on loan until the end of the season.

The deal includes a clause that enables the Premier League club to recall the centre-half after 28 days.

"He is very athletic, quick and has got a fantastic attitude," said City boss Keith Millen. "I think Danny Rose has put in a good word for us and it is good that we have got a good working relationship now with Tottenham."

He added: "Tottenham have got high hopes for him to become a Premier League defender and hopefully we can improve him and he can do well for us."

Caulker, 18, has represented England at Under-19 level and had a loan spell at Yeovil last season. He made his first-team debut for Spurs in their 4-1 Carling Cup third round defeat by Arsenal last week.
