Steven Caulker could turn out to be the ideal replacement for John Terry, according to Tottenham assistant Steffen Freund.

Caulker, who had a successful year on loan at Swansea last season, is yet to make a Barclays Premier League start for Spurs, but he was still called up by Hodgson for England's friendly against Italy in August.

"It's definitely possible," Freund said when asked if Caulker could replace Terry for England. "He is similar (to Terry). He has already been called up for the national side and he's definitely one of best centre halves in England."
