Roman Pavlyuchenko’s Tottenham Hotspur Future To Be Decided This Week

Roman Pavlyuchenko’s Tottenham Hotspur future will be resolved this week, as rumours persist of a return to Russia with Zenit St. Petersburg.

The Russian striker moved to Spurs in a £13.8 million move from Spartak Moscow one year ago but has failed to settle in London, scoring just five times in the Premier League last season.

Pavlyuchenko has seen himself fall behind Robbie Keane, Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe in the pecking order at White Hart Lane over the summer and has played just one minute of football this season, a cameo appearance during the opening day defeat of Liverpool.

As a result, Pavlyuchenko spoke with manager Harry Redknapp and club chairman Daniel Levy regarding his future.

“The meeting with Redknapp was very good,” Pavlyuchenko is quoted as saying in The Daily Mail

“He said I was in his plans but understood that my desire is to leave if I can’t get match practice.

“However, the chairman confirmed again that the option of a loan won’t even be considered. The amount they want for me is large, which could stop potential buyers.

“If that is the case, I’ll stay at Tottenham and wait for a chance. Everything will be resolved one way or the other this week.”

Zenit have emerged as favourites to land the 27-year-old forward after missing out on Alvaro Negredo, Goran Pandev and Adrian Mutu.
