Tottenham Hotspur defender Vedran Corluka is not likely to leave in January, according to his agent.

 

The Croatian has fallen behind Kyle Walker in the White Hart Lane pecking order and reports suggested he would be pushing for a move in January.

 

However, agent Nikky-Arthur Vuksanha has said the former Manchester City defender will not be moving to Juventus as some had suggested.

 

Despite denying the move to Serie A, Vuksanha did not rule out the possibility of a transfer away from Harry Redknapp’s side.

 

“I am aware of the news about Corluka's possible move to Juventus, but they are just rumours around the player,” he told calciomercato.com.

 

“In any case, well for the moment at least, he will not be going to Juve.”

 

The Croatia international joined Spurs in 2008 from fellow Barclays Premier League side Manchester City and enjoy a successful early spell.

 

However, he has since been utilised less and less, meaning he has made just three appearances the league this season.

 

Much of the speculation surrounding Corluka was based on Croatia’s qualification for Euro 2012 and the fear he may lose his place in the squad due to not playing regularly.

 

He has so far avoided this and it appears he is happy where he is as long as his international squad place is secured.
