Swansea City defender Steven Caulker hopes for a future at parent club Tottenham.

The 19-year-old is halfway through a season-long loan with Brendan Rodgers' side and has proved himself to be an excellent acquisition after turning in some assured displays at the centre of the Swans defence.

"Swansea's style was definitely a part of why I am down here," he told the Daily Mail.

"Obviously there are a lot of teams that play direct football, but Swansea mirror Spurs in the sense that they look to pass the ball, so if I can come here and prove myself then in Harry Redknapp's eyes I could be ready for a place in the Spurs team.

"I always enjoy getting on the ball, we train and work hard on it every day.

"It's very different to my last two loan spells (at Yeovil and Bristol City) but at Tottenham we have always been taught to play football so it's like going back to my roots, I have found it a challenge but the gaffer has shown confidence in me and the team."
