Pavlyuchenko in Lokomotiv talks

Lokomotiv Moscow are in talks to sign Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, Press Association Sport understands.

The 30-year-old Russia international joined the north Londoners from Spartak Moscow in September 2008 for a reported fee of £14million.

Pavlyuchenko has only impressed in fits and starts during his time with Spurs and has been regularly linked with a move away from White Hart Lane.

Anzhi Makhachkala, QPR and Sunderland have all been mooted as potential destinations recently, although it is understood the striker could now join Lokomotiv.

Pavlyuchenko has been little more than a fringe player for Spurs this season, scoring four goals in his 14 appearances.

His exit would coincide with that of defender Vedran Corluka who has joined Bayer Leverkusen on loan until the end of the season.

The full-back was a regular last season but has dropped down the pecking order at White Hart Lane following the excellent form of England right-back Kyle Walker, who was on loan at Aston Villa last season.

Corluka, who joined Spurs in 2008 from Manchester City, will spend the rest of the season on loan at the German club, who are currently sixth in the Bundesliga.
