Tottenham Hotspur striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has revealed he is trying to force a move away from the club on transfer deadline day.

Time in running out for the Russian, with Peter Crouch also on the brink of a move, with Sunderland reportedly interested in pair.

The signing of Emmanuel Adebayor is set to further limit the 29-year-old’s opportunities at Tottenham, and Pavlyuchenko says he’s hoping for a miracle on the last day of the transfer window.

"My agent is in London. He met the (Tottenham) chairman Daniel Levy to try to find a way out, but so far there is no solution," he told the Daily Mail.


"We gave the option of going out on loan for six months but Levy opposed it. The team have five forwards, and someone will not even get into the squad, so I should leave.

"We can find options. I know that Sunderland have been actively interested in me.

"In England, miracles can happen on the last day of the transfer window. So there is hope, but it is very small."

Pavlyuchenko scored 14 goals for Tottenham last season, but has rarely been first choice with Harry Redknapp in charge.
