The former Tottenham Hotspur defender is determined to help Malky Mackay's side continue their solid defensive form following a clean sheet in the goalless draw at Norwich City on Saturday.

Caulker, who spent a year on loan at the Liberty Stadium before returning to Spurs where he made 28 appearances last term, is expecting a special derby atmosphere at the Cardiff City Stadium.

"I can't wait for the South Wales derby, it's going to be massive," said the 21-year-old Londoner. "I loved my time in South Wales last time around and the people are great.

"The derby is going to be special. As soon as the move to Cardiff came up I was excited to come back to Wales - and these big matches are exactly what I want to be playing in.

"I have one eye on the World Cup at the end of the season, of course. Joining Cardiff was a move designed to aid my England hopes and matches like this one against Swansea will generate huge interest.

"I believe I have developed as a player over the last couple of years and am still working to improve my game all the time."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
