Tottenham are demanding compensation from Manchester City after pulling out of the sale of defender Vedran Corluka.

The Mirror says Spurs have sent City a bill for a pay-off after the Croatian defender was cleared to join them, had a medical and trained with them before a U-turn by City.

Supremo Daniel Levy has also asked the Premier League to intervene, but they have been urged to sort it out with City - although they reserve the right to go to law.

Spurs have considered taking out an injunction to stop Corluka from playing for City against Aston Villa this weekend.
