5. Vedran Corluka
City signed Croatian defender Corluka from Dinamo Zagreb in August 2007. He helped City to three consecutive clean sheets in his first few Premier League outings, although he was also involved in humbling defeats by Chelsea (0-6) and Middlesbrough (1-8) during his sole season at the City of Manchester Stadium.
Corluka joined Tottenham in the summer of 2008 from City and played mostly at right back although did occasionally play in central defence. He linked well on the right with Aaron Lennon and was one of four Croatians that were at White Hart lane at a time.
The arrival of Kyle Walker in the team, limited his opportunities and he left on loan to Bayer Leverkusen and then in a permanent move to Lokomotiv Moscow in the summer of 2012.
4. Clive Allen
Clive Allen joined Spurs from QPR in 1984. Two goals on his debut against Everton proved a sign of things to come, with the forward netting 60 times in his 105 league appearances for Spurs, as well as 13 in 14 in the League Cup, nine in 12 in the FA Cup , and two in four in European competition.
He later spent two and a half seasons at City. He was altogether less prolific at City, managing 10 league goals on the club’s return to the top flight in his first season but only four the following year. Allen then returned to London in 1991, first with Chelsea and later with West Ham and Millwall.
3. Paul Stewart
Paul Stewart started his career with Blackpool, and joined Manchester City in March, 1987. He scored 26 league goals for City before joining Spurs in October 1988.
His career highlight at Tottenham was probably scoring in the 1991 FA Cup final, a match that saw Spurs lift the cup after a 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest. Stewart went on to make 131 league appearances for Tottenham, scoring 28 goals.
