Milos Veljkovic: Set to leave Tottenham this window

Tottenham youngster Milos Veljkovic is set to leave White Hart Lane at the end of the season after informing the club he will not sign a new contract.

Veljkovic, who can play in defence or midfield, joined Spurs in 2011 from FC Basel but has made only two appearances for the first team, both as a substitute, towards the end of the 2013-14 season.

He spent the first three months of last season on loan at Middlesbrough but made only one start during his time at the Riverside Stadium. The Serbia Under-21 international then joined Charlton on loan in January but dislocated his shoulder in his third appearance for the Addicks, ruling him out for the rest of the season.

With Mauricio Pochettino yet to give Veljkovic an opportunity, the 20-year-old has decided he will move on in the summer.

“I have told [Spurs] I will not extend my contract which expires this summer,” Veljkovic told “Both Red Star and Partizan Belgrade have been in touch but they did not promise me anything. I told them we’d talk after the match with Italy and Slovenia.”
