Vedran Corluka Heads To Bayer Leverkusen On Loan

Tottenham Hotspur's Vedran Corluka has joined Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen on loan for the rest of the season, according to the team's official site. The fullback, 25, has seen his time with Spurs steadily diminish since he played in 41 games during the 2008/09 season, and he's made just seven appearances this year thanks to injuries and the emergence of young England international Kyle Walker at right back as a superior option, which is a bit of a damning indictment of Corluka's abilities.

With Corluka needing playing time and not finding any at Tottenham, it comes as no surprise that he's moving on. The Croatian will presumably be auditioning for a full-time move somewhere, if not necessarily with Leverkusen, and although it's unlikely that he'll be getting a starting spot with the German club, he'll still probably have more opportunity to impress there than he would have had he stayed at White Hart Lane.
