Croat rejects Spurs switch according to club

Vedran Corluka has opted to shun a move to Tottenham and stay at Eastlands, Manchester City have confirmed. Spurs moved for the Croatian defender last week - a story revealed by skysports.com - and had looked close to sealing a deal. City have now revealed that Corluka has decided to stay after a 'heart-to-heart' with manager Mark Hughes. "I am a huge admirer of Vedran," Hughes told the club's website. "He is a top-class player with a bright future ahead of him and I am delighted that he continues to be a part of our plans at Manchester City. "It is a real boost for everyone at the club. "Vedran is a great lad and I am really looking forward to working with him over the coming seasons." Hughes, who earlier on Sunday denied Stephen Ireland was heading to Sunderland, will be delighted to have seemingly won his battle to keep the 22-year-old.
