Agent reiterates Roman stance
On the eve of Spurs' debut in the Champions League against Young Boys of Berne, Oleg Artemov stated that his client is going nowhere.
GEAR: Get the new Spurs shirt
The Russian goal-getter has frequently been linked with moves away from White Hart Lane since being signed by Juande Ramos two years ago.
Recent speculation has suggested that he is set for a move to French champions Marseille, but Artemov has rejected the rumours and insisted that Pavlyuchenko is staying at Spurs.
Speaking to Russian website Championat.ru Artemov said: “This is the first time I hear about the move. Roman is not going anywhere, he has a valid contract with the London club and his heart is in Tottenham.”
Marseille manager Didier Deschamps is desperate for a striker after the sale of Mamadou Niang to Fenerbache.
Deschamps has failed in a bid to bring in Sevilla’s Luis Fabiano and is believed to be interested in Nice’s Loic Remy, as are a string of Premier League clubs, including Harry Redknapp's Tottenham.
