Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has poured cold water on Roman Pavlyuchenko’s prospective move away from White Hart Lane, stating he wants the striker to stay put in the January transfer window, report BBC
Pavlyuchenko, 30, came off the bench in place of Aaron Lennon against Sunderland yesterday, and secured three points for Spurs with the only goal of the game. However, his playing time has been limited this season, and he has been linked with January moves either back to Russia, or to fellow Premier League club QPR.
Speaking after the game, Redknapp said, “I’d like to keep him. People say Pav is going and we’re looking for a striker but it’s difficult to find anyone better. We’re very fortunate, we have four good strikers, and I’d like to keep them all here.
“He couldn’t get better treatment than he gets here. He’s at a great club. If he’s not playing, he’s always on the bench – it’s not as if he’s isolated from the first team, he’s very much part of it.”
