The young defender is on-loan at City from Tottenham.
James wrote in the Observer: "Steven Caulker is on loan at our place from Tottenham and he is having a terrific season. Only 19 years old, without a doubt he's one of our best players and I can't imagine Harry Redknapp won't want him back come the end of the season. Then again, just how amazing is he going to have to be to force his way back into a squad whose size is already limited?
"Caulks is quality, though, a world away from what I call the perennial loanee – that journeyman player who's been around the block and hasn't been able to find a home."
