Tottenham have confirmed the departure of defender Vedran Corluka to Lokomotiv Moscow.

The 26-year-old joined Spurs from Manchester City for a reported £8.5million in 2008, having impressed in his single season in the north but being keen to join international team-mate Luka Modric at White Hart Lane.

He made 110 appearances for Tottenham, scoring once, but found himself behind Kyle Walker in the pecking order, and he was farmed out to Bayer Leverkusen for the second half of this past season while also clashing with manager Harry Redknapp when he criticised a lack of squad rotation.
