It’s been widely anticipated that there would be some departures from White Hart Lane in the January transfer window but the name of Vedran Corluka hasn’t always appeared on the lists.
Charlie had lost his place to Kyle Walker at the start of the season but injuries had also restricted his appearances. Corluka provides useful cover in more than one position but it seems that he is keen to move on for the chance of regular first team football.
‘Redknapp chose Walker and doesn’t see me in the defence, so it is logical to sit round the table and agree an amicable farewell. I will talk to people in the next few days,’ the player said.
‘I don’t have the will again to wait months for a chance, to fight for a position when I see that the coach has other ideas.’
Harry Redknapp won’t want to lose such a versatile player but with Euro 2012 looming, Corluka is just one of a clutch of players across Europe looking for first team football in an attempt to secure their place on their respective country’s plane.
