BBC pundit Tam McManus is very impressed with Dundee’s signing of former England centre-back Steven Caulker.
The team currently ninth in the Scottish Premiership signed the former QPR and Spurs player on an 18 month contract, in a deal announced on the Dens Park side’s official website.
Caulker was linked with Celtic during the summer, with Brendan Rodgers, as quoted by the Daily Record, refusing to rule out a move for the player he worked with at Swansea.
The move never happened though, and ironically Caulker will be replacing Jack Hendry for the Dens Park side, after Hendry completed an eleventh hour move to Celtic Park on the final day of the transfer window.
McManus, who spent a year with the Dens Park side in 2005, thinks that the signing of Caulker is a great one.
“Could be some signing for Dundee. Pedigree not in doubt and at 26 prime of his career.” he said, as quoted on his personal Twitter account.
“Exciting for the Dee fans.”

Some Celtic supporters seem surprised that the Bhoys didn’t attempt to sign the free agent Caulker as they are in the middle of a centre-back injury crisis which has saw both Dedryck Boyata and Jozo Simunovic miss matches.
The player will now need to wait until the summer to see if the Hoops decide to firm up their previous interest in him.
