According to today’s Mirror transfer live blog (08:48,) the Whites and Rangers are to battle it out for Steven Caulker.
The defender has had a varied career up until now.
He did well for the likes of Swansea City and Cardiff to an extent but personal issues among other things have blighted him and stopped him reaching his full potential.
At 26-years-old, though, the powerful defender still has plenty of years left in him to become the player he has threatened to be and he’d certainly be one I’d like at Leeds.
Liam Cooper and Pontus Jansson look set to be the first-choice centre-halves at the club but it’s now important that we have good enough back-ups that can push them all the way.
Competition for places is key in this division and I think beating Rangers to Caulker would prove a very decent piece of business.
Let’s see if we can do it.
