Tottenham’s Corluka wants permanent Leverkusen move

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

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."
