Pavlyuchenko set to leave Spurs

Pav’s agent has admitted he expects the striker to leave the club this summer.

“I am busy with the search for a new club for Roman,” Oleg Artemov said in the Daily Mirror.

Stuttgart are one of the club’s interested in signing Pavlyuchenko.

Artemov explained: “Earlier this week I received a phone call from the Stuttgart manager who officially confirmed their interest in Pavlyuchenko.

“But it is still too early to begin intensive negotiations. A lot is going to depend on the player’s opinion and that of Tottenham.

“What I know for sure is that Tottenham are going to lose money and sell Pavlyuchenko just anywhere for any money.

“I talked to (Spurs chairman) Daniel Levy. He told me that he doesn’t think Roman has become cheaper now.

“Forwards are always in short supply in football and their value shouldn’t drop even in the credit crunch times.”
