Scottish Champions Celtic and Newcastle United have both been linked with Queens Park Rangers’ centre half Steven Caulker according to The Daily Record.
Despite Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink revealing his desire to keep Caulker at the club beyond the summer, the interest in him is yet to nullify.
Crystal Palace were reportedly close to signing Caulker however with Palace’s attention turning to West Ham United’s James Tomkins, it appears that the interest in Caulker has quietened.
The latest club that has been linked with 24-year-old centre half are Celtic, where it appears that Brendan Rodgers is looking to strengthen his side. Rodgers has previously worked with Caulker at Swansea and it appears that Rodgers is now keen to bring him north of the border.
However Newcastle are in the driving seat for Caulker’s signature as they are capable of paying the entirety of Caulker’s £30,000 a week wages and this may persuade Queens Park Rangers to allow Caulker to join Newcastle rather than Celtic.
