Vedran Corluka says he would like to remain with Bayer Leverkusen is it were possible.

The Croatian defender has been on loan from Tottenham since January and suggests he would be open to a permanent move to the Bundesliga club if it became an option but admits Spurs hold the cards regarding his future.

"I would like to stay, because it's a good club, I made a lot of friends here, I like the league as well, so why not?" he told

"I think it is not in my hands, as I'm still a Tottenham Hotspur player, so we'll see what will happen, because Tottenham is a good club as well.

"Both options are very good for me, but who knows? Probably I'll end up playing for another club - you never know."
