Tottenham are keen to bring Steven Caulker back from Cardiff City.

The Mirror says Spurs boss Tim Sherwood is a big fan of the 22-year-old centre-back, who was sold last summer by then-coach Andre Villas-Boas for £8million.

It was Sherwood, in his role developing the White Hart Lane club's young players, who made the case for Caulker to be more heavily integrated into the first team.

Caulker made his Tottenham debut in 2010, and had loan spells at Yeovil, Bristol City and Swansea to gain experience before making 28 appearances - and his England debut - under Harry Redknapp in 2012-13.
