Roman Pavlyuchenko desperate for Tottenham exit

Striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has admitted that he is looking to leave Spurs in January for a move to home country Russia, as he is convinced that boss Harry Redknapp has lost faith in him.
The 29-year-old has insisted that he will put in a written transfer request in December to gain a move from White Hart Lane to Anzhi Makhachkala, as he believes that if he stays at Spurs he will lose all chances of being included in Russia’s Euro 2012 squad.

Despite featuring frequently in the Europa League, Pavlyuchenko has failed to start a game in the Premier League and has made just two appearances as a sub against Manchester United and Newcastle.

Due to the lack of opportunities in the Spurs starting line-up, the former Spartak Moscow player has been left frustrated in recent weeks.
“I have to do something in the transfer period. We’re ahead of the European Championship. If I don’t change (my club) then Euro 2012 will be played without me,” he told

“I was fighting and fighting but it was useless. Does Redknapp believe in me? Now I don’t think so.
“I do the training as good as the others. I do everything with 100 per cent effort.

“I don’t cry and I don’t say that everybody is bad but I’m a good footballer. If I score in each game then I can play. But it’s not a reality to score in each game. That’s all.
“Will I ask the club to sell me in December? Yes, it’s 100 per cent.

“I’d rather go back to Russia. If I sign to Anzhi or not – we shouldn’t go too far. Maybe I’ll have only one possibility and that will be Anzhi and nothing else.”
Pavlyuchenko also revealed that Spartak Moscow were interested in taking him back in this Summer’s transfer window, however a deal broke down.

He added: “Karpin (Valery Karpin, caretaker coach of Spartak Moscow) contacts me before each transfer period.
“He says he wants to take me but when the transfer window closes our connection ends.

“They keep saying they want me and my answer is – if they want me then negotiate with my club about the details. But finally they don’t negotiate about me. That’s the way they want me.”
