Corluka to stay at the club

Manchester City Football Club has put an end to the speculation regarding the future of right back Vedran Corluka.

The popular Croatian had originally been linked with a move to Tottenham, but decided to stay with City after a heart-to-heart with manager Mark Hughes.

A delighted Mark Hughes said, "I am a huge admirer of Vedran. He is a top class player with a bright future ahead of him and I am delighted that he continues to be a part of our plans at Manchester City.

"It is a real boost for everyone at the Club. Vedran is a great lad and I am really looking forward to working with him over the coming seasons."

The player, along with the rest of the first team will report for training tomorrow as the manager and squad prepare for the Thursday night’s game against FC Midtjylland in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.

A real positive given the negative news that has circled in recent days and a big about turn from what was expected given reports over the last couple of days.

As the statement has only just been released from the club, it will certainly be interesting to see what emerges in the next day or so with regards to the whole Corluka saga, and hopefully more clarification as regards the current financial position at the club.
