Roman Pavlyuchenko has put rumours over his future to rest, with the Tottenham striker’s agent insisting he will work out the finer details of a new deal with Spurs very soon, and that the Russian has his heart set on staying with the club.
Pavlychenko signed for Tottenham in September 2008 for a reported fee of £14 million. Since his move from Russian side Spartak Moscow, the 29-year-old has scored 37 goals in 98 appearances.
While this summer Pavlyuchenko has been linked with a possible move back to Moscow, agent Oleg Armetov says that when talks take place with Tottenham over an extension on the Russia international’s deal, Pavlyuchenko will be hoping to remain in London for the long term future.
"We haven't talked about Roman's future with Tottenham yet,” Armetov said.
“The team is in South Africa at the moment and then we'll negotiate about his contract extension.
"We don't care about any other offers because Roman wants to stay in London, his heart belongs to Tottenham."
The news will be a positive for fans, who have had to endure the Luka Modric transfer saga over the past few weeks, with the playmaker's future at White Hart Lane still the subject of constant speculation.
Meanwhile, in more news on Tottenham’s transfer front, Harry Redknapp has revealed the club are not chasing West Ham star Scott Parker, who has been connected to Spurs on a number of occasions over the last two years.
"If you take into account the fee of around £8m, signing on fees and wages you're talking about a £30m deal,” Redknapp said.
“There is no way the club would sanction a deal for a 30-year-old who would have no resale value at the end of his contract.”
