Cardiff City are being linked with a potential loan move for Tottenham defender Steven Caulker, according to the Daily Mail.

The newly promoted side are looking to bolster their defensive options this summer as the key to Premier League survival is a sturdy back line. With competition for places alongside Jan Vertonghen at White Hart Lane fierce, Caulker may have to look for more regular first team football away from London, as he wants to further his development.

Having failed to re-sign loanee defender Ryan Bennett from Premier League rivals Norwich on a permanent basis this summer, manager Malky Mackay wants to bring in the 21-year old defender, who has already enjoyed a successful loan stint in Wales in his career, where Swansea gave him his first real Premier League experience in his career.

With Michael Carrick and Younes Kaboul both looking for playing time at the North London club next season, it may be more beneficial for a player like Caulker to go out on loan for another season and continue his growth. The young England star is yet to cement himself as a main-stake in the Spurs line-up, and a regular place in Cardiff’s team would be beneficial.

Cardiff have wasted no time reinforcing their squad ahead of their maiden Premier League campaign, having already brought in talent Danish striker Andreas Cornellius and Derby defender John Brayford, while they remain interested in both Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley and Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue.
