Caulker of a deal for Swans

The 19-year-old has impressed in previous loan spells at Yeovil and

Bristol City and will strengthen the Swans’ defence following their

promotion to the Premier League. The England Under-21 international

will put pen to paper within the next week on a deal which will be

reviewed in January. City chairman Huw Jenkins told the club’s

official website, www.swanseacity.net: “We are delighted to have

agreed terms with Tottenham regarding a deal for Steven. “The deal

has been very close for the last couple of weeks. I met (Tottenham

chairman) Daniel Levy at a Premier League meeting in Darlington and

spoke at length about Steven. “We feel his general size and ability

are perfect qualities to add to our team. “Steven is a young,

upcoming player that is a big talent, and he is looking forward to

being part of our squad in the Premier League. “It is an exciting

signing for us. There was other interest in him prior to this deal

being agreed, but Tottenham felt it was perfect for Steven to

continue his deal here.”
