One transfer story that seems to have gone through – albeit that it has yet to be confirmed by the club is the departure of Vedran Corluka to Lokomotiv Moscow. The versatile defender who joined us from Manchester City has however been confirmed as a new signing by the Russians for an undisclosed fee.
One player who is certainly happy with Charlie’s arrival is former Spur and current Lokomotiv hitman Roman Pavlyuchenko.
“It’s great news – the best I’ve heard for a week and a half,” Pav said.
“He is a very tenacious, uncompromising defender, who is practically impossible to beat one on one.
“He convinced me of this in training several times.
“He’s physically strong and, without flatter, I would say that Corluka was probably the strongest defender at Tottenham.”
Corluka joined us in the summer of 2008 and went on to play in 109 games for the club, scoring once.
