Roman Pavlyuchenko will have to consider a move away from Tottenham in the January transfer window if he doesn't start to get more games.[LNB] The Russian striker has been at White Hart Lane since joining from Spartak Moscow in a big-money deal in 2008.[LNB]He has impressed at times but has struggled for consistency and is not a permanent fixture of Harry Redknapp's starting XI.[LNB]Having been linked with a switch elsewhere in the summer, Redknapp instead opted to keep hold of Pavlyuchenko and let Robbie Keane and Peter Crouch go.[LNB]But summer signing Emmanuel Adebayor has gone straight to the top of the pecking order and is currently being partnered by the in-form Jermain Defoe, leaving Pavlyuchenko with limited opportunities.[LNB]The 29-year-old still feels a lot of affection for the club but is desperate to play and would be willing to leave for the good of his career.[LNB]"I do not have much playing practice at Tottenham, although I am in very good physical shape," he said in The Sun.[LNB]"I very much want to play football. That's why I need to start thinking now about moving clubs in the winter. [LNB]"I love Tottenham. The team is like my second family. But if nothing changes I will agree to any loan deal. In fact, to any deal which gives me the chance to play permanently."
