Roman Pavlyuchenko Is Not Leaving Tottenham Hotspur – Harry Redknapp

Roman Pavlyuchenko The Spurs boss has dismissed speculation linking the Russian striker with a return to Spartak Moscow.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has dismissed stories linking striker Roman Pavlyuchenko with a move back to Russia.

“His people came down the training ground yesterday, they wanted to have a meeting with me to talk about him,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“He doesn’t want to go and they don’t want him to go. He’s very happy.”

The Russian forward had voiced his concerns about his World Cup prospects, as he has seemingly dropped down the pecking order at White Hart Lane. Redknapp acknowledged Pavlyuchenko’s feelings, but insisted the striker was happy at Spurs.

“His only concern was missing out on the World Cup as he needs to play for Russia but it wasn’t a case of him wanting to leave,” said Redknapp.

“He’s got no issues with the club, he’s very happy in London, happy at the club. I don’t think anything’s going to happen.”

The 27-year-old scored in the Carling Cup against Doncaster Rovers last night, and the Tottenham manager admits he would like the striker to stay.

“I don’t know what we paid for him, you wouldn’t get him for £10million anyway,” insisted the Spurs boss.

“The feedback I had yesterday from him and his people was that he didn’t want to go so I don’t see him going. I’d like to keep him.”
