Although Caulker's immediate priority is to help City move clear of relegation trouble and stake a claim for a place in the top half of the table, his thoughts frequently return to White Hart Lane.
"I'm not just saying it because I think I should, but I really do believe I have a long-term future at Tottenham," said Caulker.
"I usually go back to London to train on Mondays and Tuesdays, so I'm still involved with the first-team squad.
"Whenever I play for City, Tottenham send someone to watch me, usually Tim Sherwood, whose job it is to monitor my progress. They wouldn't be doing that if they didn't think I was going to make it in the Premier League."
