Veljkovic set to end Spurs misery and make Bremen switch

Milos Veljkovic: Set to leave Tottenham this window

Milos Veljkovic is poised to end his Tottenham frustration by joining Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen, sources have told

Werder Bremen have been searching for a new midfielder during this month’s transfer window and have lined up a £500,000 move for Veljkovic.

Veljkovic has found himself out of favour at Tottenham after failing to agree a new deal at White Hart Lane, with his current contract due to expire at the end of the season.

The Serbian, who can play either as a centre-back or holding midfielder, joined Tottenham in 2011 from Basel, but he has endured a frustrating time in north London.

Veljkovic has made just two Premier League appearances for Tottenham, both as a substitute at the end of the 2013/14 season.

The 20-year-old has brief loan spells at Middlesbrough and Charlton Athletic last season as Tottenham looked for him to gain some first-team experience before returning to fight for his place in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans, but Veljkovic has not been able to break into the side.

Tottenham have decided to sell Veljkovic this month rather than letting him run down his contract and Bremen have moved to land the player for a knockdown fee.
