Rosenborg bid in as ex-Spurs, Liverpool defender Caulker rebuilds career at Dundee

Former Tottenham and Liverpool defender Steven Caulker has quickly rebuilt his career at Dundee.

Dundee have rejected an "unbelievable" bid in the region of £1.8million from Rosenborg for Caulker.

"There's been a bid and Steven has been informed of it. It was an unbelievable offer," Dundee boss Neil McCann said.

"I'm not prepared to say what the bid actually was but what I will say is it's in excess of the transfer fee Celtic paid for Jack Hendry.

"He (Caulker) is not interested because he wants to stay here. He's got work to do as far as he's concerned.

"I'm not interested in it either. We're trying to build something here for the future.

"So all things considered, I'm very happy.

"I have to say it's fantastic for Steven. He has come here and, in such a short space of time, a club has attempted to try to prise him away for that size of transfer fee.

"It's shows how good a player he really is."
