Vedran Corluka and his agent will sit down with Tottenham Hotspur big wigs this week in an attempt to secure a loan move to Roma in the January transfer window according to talkSPORT.
The Croatian defender has lost his place at White Hart Lane after the sudden emergence of Kyle Walker who has been sensational in an improving Spurs side this season. Corluka has made just three league appearances under Harry Redknapp this season and is desperate for first team football.
With Euro 2012 on the horizon, the 25-year-old is on the verge of losing his place in the Croatian national team due to lack of first team football at the Lane. Roma though are set to offer Corluka an escape route that will consist of a six month loan, with a view to a permanent deal in the summer.
Redknapp does not have the strength in depth that he requires for a title challenge in the second half of the Premier League season and so may not be keen on losing another defender in January without a replacement lined up.
Corluka’s 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.”
