Bayer Leverkusen interested in Vedran Corluka loan


Bayer Leverkusen want to take Tottenham defender Vedran Corluka on loan until the end of the season, Press Association Sport understands.

The right-back was a first-team regular last term, but has been edged out of contention thanks to the excellent form of England youngster Kyle Walker this season.

It is understood that the German side have asked Tottenham if they can take the 25-year-old Croatian, who has made just one Barclays Premier League start this season, on loan until the end of the season.
