Spurs have lost the opportunity to earn an additional £2m on the sale of Caulker.
The relegation of Cardiff City from the Premier League has cost Tottenham Hotspur £2m, reports the Telegraph.
Tottenham were set to receive an additional £2m on top of the £8.5m they received on the sale of central defender Steven Caulker last summer, but Cardiff’s relegation back to the Championship after just one season in the top flight means that Spurs will not get their bonus.
Caulker has been mightily impressive for the Bluebirds this season, and although he has a reported release clause in his contract that would enable him to leave the relegated club, reports suggest that the 22-year old wants to stay on in the Welsh capital next term.
Tottenham are harbouring thoughts of signing Caulker back this summer, but it remains to be seen whether the England international would want to return to White Hart Lane just 12 months after he was deemed to be surplus to requirements.
