Caulker has impressed consecutively for the last 2 seasons. In the 2009-2010 season his season loan spell brought back to Spurs a player of the year award with him after a successful stint at Yeovil. The promising centre half carried this into last season where he turned out regularly for Bristol City whilst knocking in a few goals in the process.
Yesterday saw us tie down Caulker to a new contract until 2014 then barely after pen had left paper he was told to pack his bags and has been sent abroad to gain valuable experience for the Swans in the Premier League. Gaining Premier League experience should prove decisive in whether Caulker is ready to push for a starting place in the Spurs XI for next year or whether a good Championship player will always be his level.
Kyle Walker has already shown the benefits that can be reaped of a loan spell after enjoying arguably one of the most successful seasons in his career last season. If he's not atleast pushing for a spot in the first team next year then it would leave me questioning the point of a loan spell if when a player does impress he is still not given the chance or is sold.
Still though we still look to have some promising players that could soon be touching shoulders with the same players that reached the quarter final of Europe's most prestigious competition last season.
