A product of the Tottenham Hotspur Academy, centre-back Steven Caulker made his professional debut in August 2009 whilst on a season long loan at Yeovil Town.
Caulker, 22, made his Spurs debut under Harry Redknapp in September 2010 - a 4-1 League Cup defeat against Arsenal.
Just five days after making his first Tottenham appearance, Caulker moved to Championship outfit Bristol City on loan until the end of the season. He made 29 appearances for the Robins and scored two goals, including one against QPR in a 2-2 draw in January 2011. However, his season was cut short when in March he sustained a knee injury ruling him out for the rest of the campaign.
After recovering from injury, Caulker joined Swansea City in June 2011 following their promotion to the Premier League on a season long loan. He started 26 times for the Swans, who finished their debut campaign in the top flight in 11th spot.
After representing the Great Britain side in five matches at the 2012 Olympic Games, the Feltham born defender signed a new four-year deal at White Hart Lane before going on to make 28 first team appearances in all competitions for the Lilywhites that season.
However, Caulker returned to Wales, this time on a permanent basis, to pen a deal with newly-promoted Premier League side Cardiff City. The 6” 3’ centre-back was ever present for Cardiff that campaign but was unable to prevent them returning to the Championship at the first time of asking.
Caulker was signed by QPR in 2014 to once again team up with former Rangers boss Harry Redknapp. He spent the 2015/16 season out on loan at Southampton and Liverpool.
During the 2016/17 season Caulker, who has been capped once by England, made 14 appearances for the R’s and scored two goals.
