Tottenham boss wants Pav stay

The out-of-favour Russia international has been linked with a January move away from White Hart Lane.

The former Spartak Moscow ace has been linked with a move to Roma in his bid for regular first-team action.

“We’ve got a strong squad – and we’ve got Luka Modric to come back. There’s more than enough strength in depth,” explained Redknapp.

“I don’t want to sell Roman Pavlyuchenko. Technically he’s a fantastic talent but he keeps saying he wants to go.

“He’s got great ability but he wants to play regularly but it’s been difficult with (Jermain) Defoe, (Peter) Crouch and (Robbie) Keane all doing well. It’s unlucky for him.”
