According to Sky Sources, Cardiff defender Steven Caulker is today having his medical at Premiership new boys QPR.

There has been significant competition for the England centre back, with Crystal Palace having an offer accepted for the 22 year old as well, however it looks like Caulker has decided to choose the play-off winners over a Palace side that became hard to beat after the appointment of Tony Pulis as manager.

Cardiff only signed Caulker last season for £8 million, which is the buy-out clause that Caulker had in his Cardiff contract, from Tottenham after having an impressive loan spell at rivals Swansea. He played all 38 Premier League games for Cardiff scoring 5 times, and was one of the few players whose reputation remained intact following the club’s relegation.

After securing the signature of Rio Ferdinand from Manchester United a few days ago, signing Caulker would be a huge plus for QPR manager Harry Redknapp, who did manager the Cardiff captain whilst at Tottenham, however he did not make a Premier League appearance when Redknapp was manager at Spurs.
