Roman Pavlyuchenko set for talks next week to sort out Spurs future

Roman Pavlyuchenko hopes to thrash out whether he has a future at Tottenham Hotspur next week.

The Russia striker's agent will fly into London for talks with the White Hart Lane hierarchy as Stoke City and Lokomotiv Moscow prepare £11million bids for the 28-year-old.

Pavlyuchenko impressed in the second half of last season but finds his future in north London again in doubt as the Champions League qualifiers look to add at least one new striker this summer.

The former Spartak Moscow star does not want another season where he spends more time on the bench than in the starting line-up and wants to know his place in boss Harry Redknapp's pecking order.

'Right now, Roman is on holiday,' said Oleg Artemov, the player's agent. 'He doesn't want to think about football in general, let alone the particulars of his future. So the situation isn't clear.

'Pavlyuchenko could leave Tottenham but it depends on many factors. We need to all sit down and talk together calmly: Roman and I, Spurs and of course Harry Redknapp. It's still not known whether he needs Pavlyuchenko or not.

'The main problem is in Roman's head. He is now at a crossroads and he needs to make a choice.

'So far Pavlyuchenko has not decided whether he wants to stay at Tottenham, go to another European club or return to Russia.'
