Scottish Premiership side Dundee have been linked with a move for former QPR defender Steven Caulker, according to the Evening Telegraph.

Caulker has been a free-agent since leaving QPR at the end of December, however the 26-year-old has been training with Sky Bet League Two side Luton Town ever since.

The Hatters sit atop England’s fourth-division and are reported to have offered him a deal, but Caulker has also been negotiating with teams outside the UK, with talks ongoing with sides from China and Turkey.

Caulker endured a turbulent period at Loftus Road prior to his exit from the West London club with the player having been frozen out of the side while he is also believed to have suffered some personal problems.

But Dundee have since been added to the list of sides interested in a player who was once rated as one of England’s most promising defenders.

The report in the ‘Evening Standard’ states that “there has been contact between his representatives and the Dark Blues”.

Caulker progressed through the Spurs youth ranks before making a number of loan trips away from White Hart Lane. 18 appearances for the Premier League side led to the defender being tipped for a successful career with them and England, however he was only able to get one cap for the Three Lions.

The 26-year-old has also made five appearances for the Great Britain side that part in the 2012 London Olympics.

Last summer Caulker was linked with a move to Celtic, where he would be managed by former manager Brenan Rodgers – who guided the defender while on-loan from Spurs at Swansea City – however a move failed to materialise.
