Swansea City have confirmed that they have agreed to sign Tottenham’s Steven Caulker on a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old won the plaudits of just about everyone associated with the Robins while on loan at Ashton Gate and there were faint hopes that the player may return for another season at Ashton Gate.

However, following promotion to the Premier League, both Norwich and Swansea both wanted to acquire his services and last month the player indicated he would like a spell in the Premier League with Swansea.

Swans chairman Huw Jenkins told the club’s official website: ‘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 out 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.’
