Agent: No loan move for Pavlyuchenko

The agent of unsettled Tottenham Hotspur striker Roman Pavlyuchenko says the striker is still keen to leave the club, but will have to depart permanently rather than on loan.

The 27-year-old Russian has found first-team opportunities at White Hart Lane hard to come by in 2009/10, with fellow goal-getters Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane and Peter Crouch all regularly finding the back of the net.

And as a result, the former Spartak Moscow striker - who scored 15 goals last season following a £13.8 million move - publicly revealed his wish to leave the club in search of regular action ahead of next summer's World Cup.

Pavlyuchenko's targets have now changed following his country's play-off defeat to Slovenia.

But although Spurs' boss Harry Redknapp has insisted he wants to keep the want-away forward in North London, the player's representitive has stated that Pavlyuchenko still desires a transfer.

However, he revealed that a loan switch for the striker is not an option, and clubs interested in securing his services - reportedly Roma - in the New Year will have to whip out their chequebook.

"I have not heard from Roma since they were in London and there has not been any contact with Tottenham either," Oliver Wendt told

"[A loan deal] is not possible. It’s either a permanent transfer or there will be no deal. He wants to leave Tottenham."
