Steven Caulker is training with Wigan Athletic ahead of a potential move, according to the Daily Record.

The 26-year-old is hoping for a return to the game with the Championship side. He has been looking for a club since leaving Scottish Premier League side Dundee at the end of August and has been weighing up his options. Clubs such as Aston Villa and Ukrainian outfit Arsenal Kiev have been linked with him but it now seems that Wigan is his most likely next destination.

Caulker impressed for Dundee last season in the 17 games he played for them. He started his career at Tottenham Hotspur and rose through the youth ranks at White Hart Lane before going onto play 29 times for their first-team.

He also enjoyed loan spells away from Spurs at Yeovil Town, Bristol City and Swansea City before leaving on a permanent basis to join Cardiff City in 2013. Caulker could not prevent the Bluebirds from relegation to the Championship in his first and only season in Wales but he did secure a move to QPR the following summer.

Caulker went onto feature on 54 occasions for the Hoops and also had loan stints at Southampton and Liverpool during his time at Loftus Road. Dundee was then the next destination for him but the once England international is now keen on a return to the Football League.

Wigan Athletic look to be his next move and the North-West side will be hoping Caulker can tighten up their backline.
