Tottenham defender Vedran Corluka joins Bayer Leverkusen on loan
Tuesday 31 January 2012
Tottenham defender Vedran Corluka has joined Bayer Leverkusen on loan until the end of the season, the Barclays Premier League club have announced.
The full-back was a regular last season but has dropped down the pecking order at White Hart Lane following the excellent form of England right-back Kyle Walker, who was on loan at Aston Villa last season.
Corluka, who joined Spurs in 2008 from Manchester City, will spend the rest of the season on loan at the German club, who are currently sixth in the Bundesliga.
The loan deal for the 25-year-old could be the first of many deals to go through at the north London club today.
Tottenham are famed for their love of an 11th-hour deal on deadline day and Joe Jordan this afternoon refused to rule out a late move to sign Juventus winger Milos Krasic.
Krasic, 27, has been unable to hold down a first-team place at the Italian club and Spurs' first team-coach Jordan admits an evening swoop for the player is possible.
"I cannot say too much about the club's intentions," he told tuttojuve.com.
"Krasic is one of the many names that the transfer market offers, but a successful negotiation will depend on the will of the player.
"We are happy with our squad. We could do something, though, if a player leaves in the coming hours. Anything is possible."
The Londoners are also rumoured to be keen on adding a forward to their ranks before the transfer window shuts at 11pm tonight and have been strongly linked with a move for Everton striker Louis Saha.
