Former Dundee and Liverpool defender Steven Caulker has joined Mesut Ozil at Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahçe.

The centre-back has been with fellow Turkish club Alanyaspor since 2019, following a spell with Dundee. Caulker made 14 appearances and a big impression on the Dens Park support during a short 2018 stint, the transfer to Tayside his first since a loan move to Liverpool.

Still only 29, Caulker made a handful of Liverpool appearances as one of Jurgen Klopp’s first Anfield signings. Available to represent Scotland at international level through the grandparent rule, Caulker’s form at Dundee earned him the move to Turkey, where he has now transferred to one of the nation’s biggest clubs.

He said of his former employers: “Thank you very much to Alanyaspor and Alanyaspor fans for everything. You’ve always had my back and made me feel like a member of your family. You gave me a chance. I will never forget what you did for me. I wish you success.”
