Centre Half Targeted
Steven Caulker now needs to decide where he's going, his protracted Cardiff exit has dragged on far too long. A replacement is already (as you'd expect) being linked up and according to reports in the Daily Echo he could come from Southampton, previously linked with Caulker themselves.
If we're going to snap up our reported transfer target Jose Fonte though we'll need to increase whatever our offer was to Southampton as, in something of a rarity as the Premier League side seem to be accepting every offer that comes in, this was rejected.
Fonte might not want to drop back into the Championship anyway but if he does, and we can find an acceptable offer for the 30 year old who is in the last year of his contract at St Mary's, he'll make a good signing as he's got plenty of experience and a fair amount of Premier League quality too.
We'll be linked with plenty of players more so when we've got some £8m in our pocket when Caulker finally decides where he's going!
