Bayer Leverkusen have confirmed the signing of Vedran Corluka on loan from Tottenham Hotspur for the rest of the season.
Sky Sports revealed on Monday that the Croatia international was in talks to join Leverkusen after struggling to make an impact at White Hart Lane this season.
The defender had made only three appearances in the Premier League this term and had not featured for Spurs since the end of November.
He has now been allowed to link up with Leverkusen to play regular first-team football in order to be match fit for Croatia's Euro 2012 campaign.
Leverkusen chief executive Wolfgang Holzhauser told the club's official website: "Corluka is a good professional who can immediately give our team a quality boost."
Sporting director Rudi Voller added: "Corluka brings the experience of 52 international matches to Leverkusen and fits perfectly with our requirements.
"He can not only be used on the right side, but also in the middle or at left-back. We are very pleased that we were able to agree this deal."
Corluka joined Spurs from Manchester City in 2008 and he has made 110 appearances for the club.
