Player profile

Steven joined Liverpool on loan in January 2016 to add experience and aerial power to a defence depleted by injuries which had also been letting in too many goals from crosses and set pieces. His debut came in the closing stages of a game against Arsenal, when he was brought on as a makeshift forward as the Reds trailed 3-2.

Caulker was a product of Tottenham Hotspur's academy but after signing professional forms in 2009 at the age of seventeen he spent three out of the four years of his contract on loan, at Yeovil, Bristol City and Swansea. It was whilst at Swansea in 2011-12, their first top flight season for 29 years, that he attracted the attention of the national side and was called up to the UK 2012 Olympic squad and then played for England in a friendly against Sweden in November 2012, scoring a goal.

After making 28 appearances for Spurs in 2012-13 he joined newly promoted Cardiff City for £8million, playing every minute of a Premiership campaign that ended in relegation. He then joined Queens Park Rangers with whom he was relegated again, leading to a loan to Southampton for the 2015-16 season. Prior to the transfer window he made only three league appearances and the loan was cancelled, leading to him joining the Reds on 12th January for the remainder of the season. His first three appearances were as an late emergency striker, setting up a 95th minute winner for Adam Llallana at Norwich. He  and he then played the full ninety minutes of the FA Cup 4th round tie against West Ham and but apart from two occasions as an unused substitute never featured again. It was no surprise when Liverpool showed no interest in making his loan move permanent. He returned to QPR and was a regular at the start of 2016-17 but lost his place after a hip injury. He looked set to join Lokomotiv Moscow on loan in January, the Daily Mirror reporting that the Russian club were picking up his £30,000 a week wages. However they then pulled out of the deal accusing him of having unrealistic demands and he didn't make any more of QPR's matchday squads that season.After being released by QPR, he joined Dundee on 8th February 2018.
