Dark Blues snap up Caulker

Former Tottenham, Cardiff City and QPR defender Steven Caulker is hoping to resurrect his career with Dundee after signing an 18-month deal with Neil McCann's side.

The 26-year-old, who scored on his England debut in the 2-1 friendly international victory against Sweden in November 2012, left QPR by mutual consent in December and is keen to impress in Scotland.

"I spoke with the manager, he gave me a call and I really liked the sound of him," said Caulker. "I'm excited and looking forward to getting started.

"What I want is to be back enjoying my football in a good environment with a manager who is understanding, and one who is caring and respectful.

"I've had six weeks out of football and had a little period at Luton which helped to tick me over.

"I need to get my match fitness back but that shouldn't take too long."

Caulker made 18 Premier League appearances for Spurs, 1/12 to finish in the Premier League's top four this season, before moving to Cardiff for £8million in the summer of 2013.

He featured in 38 league games for the Bluebirds, but moved on to QPR after just one season in Wales and scored three goals in 50 league appearances for the Loftus Road-based side.

Dundee are 21/10 to beat Motherwell this weekend.
