Manchester City boss Mark Hughes is happy to sell defender Vedran Corluka to Tottenham in an £8 million deal.

Croatian international Corluka, 24, has already passed a medical at White Hart Lane and cannot wait to join his good friend Luka Modric in London.

A City source told The Sun: "This deal is great news for everyone.

"Vedran's a good player but it means the manager can use the money to bring in a forward.

"Everyone's a winner. Vedran is desperate to team up with Modric.

"He was popular here but this is good business."
