Kiev plot double Spurs swoop

Published Add your comment

Dynamo Kiev are planning a double swoop for Tottenham's Croatian duo Vedran Corluka and Niko Kranjcar, according to the Daily Mail.

Corluka has spent the second part of 2011-12 on loan at Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, and is set to leave north London permanently after falling down the pecking order.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has a similar problem with Kranjcar - a player who he values highly - but, due to intense competition for places, the 27-year-old has not been getting the regular playing time that his talent deserves.

After starting just nine Premier League games for Tottenham this season, the midfielder will be forced to consider his options during the summer, and revealed he already has offers from Russia and Ukraine.

"In Russia and Ukraine playing football you can earn huge money," Kranjcar told Croatian website Index. "Whether we admit it or not, money is important.

"Football in the east has progressed. The teams are always high up in the Champions League or are in the Europa League final. It's not like it was 10 years ago."

Whilst Kranjcar is still wanted by Spurs, Corluka's future looks to be a lot more cut-and-dry, after the defender was recently quoted criticising Redknapp's tactics, which he said was the reason behind the team's end of season slump.
