Tottenham defender Steven Caulker looks all but set for another loan move next season.

The 19-year-old spent a majority of last season on loan with Championship side Bristol City before having his season cut short in March with an ankle injury.

City want their Young Player of the Season back at Ashton Gate next season but it appears the prospect on Premier League football may be too hard to turn down.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp believes Caulker has a future with the North London outfit but would be happy to loan him out next season in order to gain first team football.

On Caulker, Redknapp said “We think Caulker’s got a great future, but I would be happy to loan him out.

“He played at Bristol City last year on loan, did really well and had a great season for them.

“And I know Swansea want him – but so do Norwich and there are a couple of clubs in there.”

Caulker himself admitted that he would be keen to gain first team experience with a Premier League side and hinted that recently promoted Swansea City would be his ideal choice.

“I think that a Premier League loan will be the best option for me next season and if something along those lines can happen this summer it would be great,” Caulker told skysports.com.

“If I stay at Tottenham then so be it, but it all depends on what crops up and if it means going back on loan to a Championship club again then I will do.

“It is all about playing regular first-team games at my age, so hopefully something will happen this summer.

“Any sort of experience at Premier League level would interest me to be honest and I wouldn’t turn anything down at this stage.

“Obviously, I played against them (Swansea) twice last season and they play some very good football, so if that was an option I’d be more than happy to go there.

“I wouldn’t see it as a drop down at all, so we will just have to wait and see if their interest turns into something concrete because I’d love to play Premier League football next season.”

He also revealed his disappointment at missing out on the European U21 Championships with the same ankle injury forcing him to miss out on the tournament.

“I’ve got plenty of time to play with the England Under 21s, but it was disappointing to miss out after picking up an ankle injury,” he added.

“I’ve got a few years left to get into that side though and hopefully I’ll push on next season domestically and put my name into the hat next time round.”
