Steven Caulker has been at Cardiff City only for one season, and that was after spending a season on loan at the other south of Wales club Swansea, but with Cardiff relegated last season, Steven now wants to move to another club – probably in the Premier League.
Steven Caulker – Cardiff center-back wants move
Steven is a good up and coming English center-back, and there’s news in the Chronicle today that the 22-year-old has been offered to Newcastle United.
But the £9M fee Cardiff City paid Tottenham last summer for the once capped England International, could be too much for Mike Ashley to pay out, and in any case his former club Tottenham have been linked with him.
Caulker will attract a number of big clubs this summer, but we very much doubt that he will end up on Tyneside.
Newcastle would need to replace Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa if he leaves for pastures anew, unless Alan Pardew thinks that Australian Curtis Good is getting good enough to play in the first team.
One center-back we have been linked with this summer is Curtis Davies of Hull City, and he had an excellent season last term for Steve Bruce’s side, and Davies would be a very decent signing for the club.
There are a number of players Newcastle will have no chance of signing this summer, simply because of our (complete) lack of ambition and the fact that those players’ ambitions are much greater than Newcastle’s.
Steven Caulker is one of them.
