Caulker started his professional career with Tottenham Hotspur in 2009, but he spent three seasons on loan gaining experience with Yeovil Town, Bristol City and Swansea City. At Swansea he made his first appearances in the Premier League and at the end of the season had been touted as a future England centre back and played for Britain at the 2012 Olympics. In 2012 he forced his way into the Tottenham line-up on a regular basis, and scored his first goal. In the November he made his England debut in a friendly against Sweden, where he scored.

Caulker won Bristol City's Young Player of the Year award for the 2010–11 season and was a nominee for Player of the Year.
Loan to Swansea CityEdit
In early June 2011, Caulker was linked to a further season-long loan move to help continue his development through regular football this time to newly promoted Premier League clubs Swansea City and Norwich City as well as another stint at Bristol City. On 1 July 2011, Caulker officially joined Swansea City on a season-long loan, with Swansea paying an initial fee for his services and an option to review the loan in January. Former member of Spurs' backroom staff and Newport County manager Anthony Hudson described Caulker as having the "potential to be one of the best defenders in country". Hudson said during his time at Bristol City, Caulker was "the best defender in the Championship" and described him as "one to watch this season because I think he's going to be a real star". He made his Premier League and Swansea City debut in the 4–0 away defeat to Manchester City, playing the full 90 minutes. After featuring in all of Swansea's first four Premier League and keeping two clean sheets, Caulker suffered a knee cartilage injury when he collided with a goalpost in Swansea's match against Arsenal. The injury ruled him out for around eight weeks.

Caulker retained his place and received his first Tottenham league start in the next match against Manchester United, with Tottenham eventually winning the match 3–2 breaking a 23-year winless run at Old Trafford. After the match, centre back partner William Gallas praised Caulker for his performance and felt in time he would become one of the best defenders in England.
