Pavlyuchenko wants Spurs exit

BY foxsports • August 31, 2011

The 29-year-old has failed to earn a regular place in the Spurs team since his arrival from Spartak Moscow in 2008 and following the arrival of Emmanuel Adebayor, on loan from Manchester City, he has fallen further down Harry Redknapp's pecking order. Sunderland manager Steve Bruce is still trying to plug the gap left when Darren Bent departed for Aston Villa in January, and Pavlyuchenko hopes a deal can be brokered before the transfer deadline passes. "My agent is in London. He met the (Tottenham) chairman Daniel Levy to try to find a way out, but so far there is no solution," he told the Daily Mail. "We gave the option of going out on loan for six months but Levy opposed it. The team have five forwards, and someone will not even get into the squad, so I should leave. "We can find options. I know that Sunderland have been actively interested in me. "In England, miracles can happen on the last day of the transfer window. So there is hope, but it is very small." With Tottenham's squad including Adebayor, Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Rafael van der Vaart, Pavluchenko realises that he has limited opportunities at White Hart Lane. "I still want to stay and extend my contract, especially since everything suits me at Tottenham," he added. "Everything except playing time. But when I am not allowed on the pitch, renewing the contract doesn't make sense."
