Pavlyuchenko dismisses Russian return

Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko insists there is no truth in reports linking him with a return to Russia with big-spending Anzhi Makhachkala.

The 29-year-old joined Spurs in a £14million deal from Spartak Moscow three years ago but has only impressed in fits and spurts during his time at the north London club. Pavlyuchenko's indifferent form has seen him regularly linked with a move away from White Hart Lane and Russian Premier League outfit Anzhi are the latest destination to be mentioned.

"I don't even know who needs [this gossip], who's doing it all, who's writing it," he said, according to ITV Sport. "It's all untrue that I'm going to continue my career at Anzhi. It's obviously total rubbish."

The likes of Roberto Carlos, Diego Tardelli and Balazs Dzsudzsak have been tempted to ply their trade at the Dagestan club in recent times.


Despite dismissing the speculation, Pavlyuchenko did allude to the fact that he is becoming frustrated with his predominant bench role at Harry Redknapp's side.

"When the time comes for a change, an offer would be good and I will agree to it," he added.

"But for the time being it's hard for me to say what tomorrow will bring."
