Tottenham Hotspur have announced that defender Steven Caulker has committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new contract, which will see him remain at White Hart Lane until 2016.
The centre-back has been spent the last few seasons on loan, most notably enjoying a year-long stint at Swansea last season.
As confirmed in a statement on the Tottenham website, the 20 year-old has returned to London following the end of his stay in Wales, and has duly been handed a new deal, with a view to offering him more first team experience next season.
It has been suggested that he may remain at the Liberty Stadium for another year, but following Andre Villas-Boas' appointment as new Tottenham boss, it looks as though he will remain in London.
Caulker's impressive displays for the Swans have seen him named in Stuart Pearce's Great Britain squad for the Olympic Games this summer, an opportunity he is relishing.
“When I was told I was in the initial squad of 35 I just hoped I would get the call," Caulker said.
