Tottenham Hotspur have signed Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko on a five-year deal, and Croatian defender Vedran Corluka.

Spurs told the stock exchange they had signed the 26-year-old for £14 million from Spartak Moscow, and confirmed on their official website the arrival of 22-year-old Corluka from Manchester City.

"We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Manchester City for the transfer of Vedran Corluka to the club," Tottenham said in a statement.

Corluka, who has been capped 24 times by Croatia, won successive titles with Dinamo Zagreb in 2006 and 2007. He left for the Premier League and Manchester City in August 2007, where he featured at right-back, centre-back and in midfield, making 41 appearances in all competitions.

I am delighted to be here because I am coming to a big club with great players, great ambition and also my best friend
Verdran Corluka is thrilled to be linking up with Luka Modric at White Hart Lane.

" (Luka Modric) is here so it is a very happy day for me," said Corluka.

Pavlyuchenko has been capped 22 times by Russia, and was their top scorer at UEFA EURO with three goals. He joined Spartak in 2003 and went on to become the leading striker in the Russian Premier League in 2006 and 2007.
