Spurs force Pavlyuchenko to stay

Tottenham Hotspur will force striker Roman Pavlyuchenko to stay at White Hart Lane until the summer despite interest from several Russian clubs. Newcastle United and AS Roma are also thought to be keeping tabs on the experience hitman who moved to Spurs in September 2008.
The want-away attacker has already spoken of his desire to quit North London having grown increasingly frustrated with Harry Redknapp’s refusal to deploy him more often.
The 29-year-old currently competes with Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch for a regular starting berth alongside Dutch star Rafael van der Vaart but appears to be third in the pecking order.
Zenit St Petersburg are thought to be one of the club’s interested in returning Pavlyuchenko to his homeland while former side Spartak Moscow are another possible suitor.
Despite Russian clubs being able to sign new players until the middle of March, the striker’s agent, Oleg Artemov revealed, "There is no chance that Pavlyuchenko will move from White Hart Lane until the end of the season."
