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.

vote it up!

Have a feeling this isnt the end of this saga. Spurs have allegedly already submitted signed paperwork !!

Well it sounds like good news, I know the other post said that Spurs had some paperwork but wouldn't also need a City signature.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS CORLUKA IS A GOOD PLAYER BUT TO BE HONEST AFTER WATCHING TAL BEN AGAINST AC MILAN CORLUKA COULD HAVE BEEN REPLACED BY HIM HE WAS PRETTY GOOD, I WOULD HAVE BEEN SORRY TO SEE CORLUKA GO MORE SO BECAUSE OF THE FEE MENTIONED AFTER 2 MORE YEARS IN OUR TEAM WE COULD BE SELLING HIM FOR 25 MILLION PLUS IF HE CARRYS ON PLAYING THE WAY HE HAS.COME ON YOU BLUES, WE ARE IMPECCABLE. GOOD POINT MANCUNIAN

Assuming its true (and it's on mcfc so looks good), this is stunning news. After the last few seasons of speculation about Micah, Dunne, Barton, Johnson and Hart, this amounts to a show of loyalty I havent seen for some time
ben Haim looked good in a friendly and has the right assets (cool on the ball, going forward, has presence) but we know what Charlie has done in the real season for us
...but being the eternal pessimist, I hope the speculation doesnt prompt a 'real' big club from coming in for him
