AWOL Spurs star Modric in Croatia

Tottenham's AWOL midfielder Luka Modric is understood to be in Croatia.

The Sun says Rafa van der Vaart confirmed Modric was not coming - finding out via his mobile phone.

Having been told by a reporter from a Spanish newspaper that Modric was already abroad, the Dutchman called his team-mate's number.

And he was greeted by a Croatian mobile phone network's messaging service, which proved Modric's whereabouts.
