Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow have signed Tottenham Hotspur defender Vedran Corluka on a three-year deal, the club have announced.
The move will see Corluka link up with former international boss Slaven Bilic, who joins the club following six years in charge of the Croatian national team.
After making a good account of himself with Croatia at the European Championships, Corluka has been granted his move away from Tottenham, after growing disillusioned at his lack of first team opportunities.
Corluka originally moved to Manchester City in 2007, but left the newly-crowned Premier League champions after one year following interest from Tottenham.
During his three years at White Hart Lane, the defender established himself as a first XI regular, however, the emergence of Kyle Walker saw him relegated to the bench. Corluka spent the second half of last season out on loan at Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, and while the German side were uncertain whether they would make his move permanent, Lokomotiv Moscow were prepared to match Tottenham's asking price for the 26 year-old.
Lokomotiv representative Cyril Kotov said on the club's official website: "I am very pleased that we have managed to strengthen the team with high-profile player like Corluka," the head of Lokomotiv's selection department, Cyril Kotov, told the club's official website.
"Vedran is one of the leaders of the Croatian national team. This is a top-level defender with great decision-making and excellent physique
"In addition to his defensive play, Corluka is able to initiate attacks as he has a good vision.
"A lot of European clubs would have liked to sign Vedran but he choose in our favour and this helped in our negotiations with Tottenham."
