Unsettled forward set for Spurs exit?

Pav to finally get transfer wish

By | 20th October 2011

Tottenham Hotspur Harry Redknapp has refused to assure Roman Pavlyuchenko that the Russian striker is a part of the long-term plans at White Hart Lane and in fact, the Spurs boss has hinted that the player’s persistent wish to be sold may be granted in the near future.

Pavlyuchenko, 29, has made only two substitute appearances in the Barclays Premier League this season and although Redknapp hopes that the Russian continues to showcase his talent in the Europa League when Rubin Kazan pay a visit tonight, the gaffer has made it clear that he expects more.

“If he (Pavlyuchenko) wanted to go and it was a good offer, then we would look at that, for sure. He’s not a player that I’m looking to move. I like him. He’s a good person, good player. I hope he can have a good season,” Redknapp told reporters with mixed emotions.

The former Portsmouth boss added: “He has to work hard every game. He has to be more consistent. He didn’t have a great pre-season. He hasn’t shown enough this year to be in the team.

Following tonight’s exciting match, the Spurs will head to Ewood Park, where hosts Blackburn Rovers recently defeated another North London outfit, Arsenal, by a dramatic score of 4-3.
