Cardiff City have launched a bid for Tottenham defender Steven Caulker.

The Daily Mail says Cardiff have made an £8million bid for Caulker.

The England international is valued around £12m by Tottenham but Cardiff are hopeful of negotiating a deal with add-ons that the White Hart Lane club will accept.

Caulker has been the subject of interest from Liverpool and Manchester City but Cardiff have followed up with a cash offer.
