Steven Caulker wants to be a regular at White Hart Lane
Tottenham defender Steven Caulker is targeting a first team spot at White Hart Lane after putting pen-to-paper on a four year deal.
The 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Swansea and wanted assurances that he was in new manager Andre Villas-Boas’ plans.
“I have been here since I was 15. I worked my way through and hopefully this is the year I get my opportunity and it’s up to me to take it,” Caulker told Spurs TV Online.
“I have just had a chat with the manager. It’s nice to see that I am in his plans. It’s nice to hear I have his confidence and his backing so I am looking forward to next season.
“I will have to work hard this year. There are some fantastic centre halves so it’s not going to be an easy ride but I have confidence and hopefully with a bit of hard work it will pay off.
