Tottenham have agreed a deal to send Croatian defender Vedran Corluka on loan to German side Bayer Leverkusen until the end of the season.

14879 - Corluka goes on loan to Leverkusen

The 25-year-old was a first-team regular for the Premier League side last season, but has seen the emergence of Kyle Walker during the current campaign push him to the fringes of manager Harry Redknapp's thinking.

Corluka joined Spurs from Manchester City for £8.5 million in 2008. He is the first fringe player to leave Tottenham before Tuesday night's transfer window shuts, but others could follow.

Another seven players - including the likes of Giovani Dos Santos, Sebastien Bassong and Roman Pavlyuchenko - are known to want out of the club as they are frustrated at their lack of first-team football.

Other Spurs players who could be the subject of interest are goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, midfield duo Steven Pienaar and Niko Kranjcar - who have been linked with London rivals QPR - and England striker Jermain Defoe.

Pavlyuchenko has been strongly linked with a return to his homeland in the last few weeks as he wants to cement his place in the Russia side ahead of Euro 2012.

Reports this morning claimed the 30-year-old striker, who has dropped down the pecking order following the arrival of Emmanuel Adebayor, launched a tirade against Tottenham assistant Kevin Bond during a training session on Sunday over his lack of game time.

Elsewhere, Spurs' England youth international full-back Adam Smith has also agreed a loan deal with Leeds United.
