Spurs outcast Vedran Corluka is set to end his Tottenham nightmare by making the switch from North London to Rome in January, says talkSPORT. According to his agent Nikky Vuksan, Corluka could be signing for Roma once discussions with Tottenham get under way in the coming days.
The Croatian defender has been shadowed out of the team since the emergence of Kyle Walker this season. The 25-year-old has only started once in the Premier League this season for Spurs which ultimately ended in a 5-1 hammering at the hands of City.
With Euro 2012 looming, the Croatian fears he could be excluded from Slaven Bilić’s squad if he isn’t consistently playing competitive football. Corluka believes that a move to Roma would assure him of first team football.
It has been reported that Roma are willing to take a chance on Vedran this January by taking him on loan in January with a view to a permanent move in the summer. Italy would be better suited for a player like Corluka as it is less physical and the game is played at a much slower pace compared to the Premiership.
His agent Nikky Vuksan said: “Roma are one of the biggest clubs in Europe and I would accept him wearing their shirt. I hope to have a meeting with Tottenham soon so we can clarify his future.”
