Defender relieved to make Tottenham switch

Vedran Corluka has admitted he has no regrets about leaving cash-rich Manchester City for Tottenham. The Croatian insists he is relieved at finally sealing his switch to White Hart Lane after weeks of speculation. Corluka expected to join Spurs weeks ago when City agreed a fee for his services and he underwent a medical, only for the Eastlands outfit to call him back at the last minute. The deal eventually went through on deadline day and the versatile defender admits he was surprised the North West club were prepared to sell him.

Relief

"It was a big relief because lots of things happened in the last two or three weeks," Corluka told The Sun. "First the club decided to sell me but then they stopped the transfer. "I didn't expect that City would let me go. But they did and to a good club, a big club so I am happy." Corluka left City on the day it was announced the club is to be taken over by new owners the Abu Dhabi United Group, and they immediately flexed their financial muscle to bring in Robinho from Real Madrid in a new British record transfer deal. Despite City's new-found wealth, Corluka believes Tottenham can match City's ambitions of playing in the UEFA Champions League. "Everything is not just money," added Corluka. "Tottenham is a great team and we have the squad to get into the Champions League. "My chances of getting there are the same as if I had stayed at City."
