Premier League new boys Cardiff City have completed the signing of Spurs centre-back Steven Caulker.

The England international has moved a club record fee of more than £8m.

Caulker, aged 21, said: “I’m delighted to be here and excited for this fresh challenge.

“You get the sense of excitement from everybody at the club and I’m really looking forward to being part of it.”

The former Swansea City loanee has signed a four-year contract and will report for his first training session with his new team-mates tomorrow morning.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he added: “First and foremost I want to say how happy I am to have signed with Cardiff City Football Club. I’m delighted to be here and excited for this fresh challenge.

“I spoke to the gaffer yesterday, liked what he had to say and am excited about the plans he has for the football club. You get the sense of excitement from everybody at the club in the build-up to the season’s kick-off at West Ham and I’m really looking forward to being part of it.

“I thank Tottenham for everything they’ve done for me, having been there since I was a kid. But I’m here to back myself up now and show what I can do. This is a fresh start, a new chapter and I’m here to kick on.”
