Tottenham's Corluka wants permanent Leverkusen move

Tottenham defender Vedran Corluka suggests he would like to remain with German club Bayer Leverkusen.

The Croatian right-back joined the Bundesliga outfit on loan from Spurs in January and is enjoying his time at BayArena suggesting a permanent deal could be on the cards.

"The truth is that my deal at Tottenham expires in 2014, so I could go back to London," he told Globus.

"But Bayer have the option to buy me in the summer and if the two clubs reach an agreement, I can't see any reason why I shouldn't stay in Germany.

"The start of the season was not good for me or the club (Spurs). Results were not good and then I got injured.

"While I was out, Tottenham started to play better and better and when I returned it was difficult to break back into the starting XI. But I had to play as I want to be ready for Euro 2012.

"I had many offers but Bayer were the most serious. I have no regrets."
