It appears that Juande Ramos has snared another very good signing with this Manchester City man said to be a done deal that will be announced tomorrow!
BEN, the well known and respected “In-The-Know” from the FromTheLane forums has announced that we have completed the signing of Corluka from Man City. Everything’s signed and is just waiting for the FA to finalise the documents. An official announcement is expected to be made tomorrow at the earliest.
Since Ben’s announcement, this information has been confirmed by a variety of respected sources both on the Spurs side and from Man City themselves.
The versatile 22 year old Crotian defender is expected to deputise for the injured Alan Hutton at right-back when Spurs commence their premiership campaign away to Boro but it’s still unclear as to whether he’s seen as a long term solution to Spurs central defense worries, whether he’ll feature in a defensive midfield role or challenge Hutton for the right back spot.

Many other sources confirm that this deal is all but complete and if so then Ramos has managed to bag yet more quality in a summer that has been heavily laden with transfer comings and goings at White Hart Lane. Corluka is a class act who always looks assured on the ball and very effective in the full back position. If he can also feature in central defence and midfield effectively then Ramos will have a very useful utility player to call upon. Do Tottenham fans think that they can challenge for a top four finish in 08/09 or will it take longer to break that monopoly?
