North London strike duo Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko are not considering a move away from Tottenham.

England international Crouch was reportedly unhappy at being a bench warmer last season whilst Pavlyuchenko was also looking for more regular football.

Spurs Premier League rivals Sunderland had been linked with both forwards as the Black Cats look to solve their own striking concerns but look to be disappointed following comments from the duo.

Crouch is confident that Redknapp will be looking to strengthen his squad over the summer to keep pace with Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

He said: "Of course I'm happy where I am. It's a great club and, in my opinion, it's on the up.

"We have a lot more to achieve. There's no doubt in the world that every team are going to make themselves stronger and we can't fall behind.

"I'm sure that the manager and chairman have got plans in mind of who they will want to bring in and add that little bit of quality that takes us to maybe that next step."

Meanwhile, Pavlyuchenko's agent Oleg Artemov insists the 29-year-old is determined to stay and become a first team regular.

Artemov said: "Roman wants to stay at Tottenham. In a couple of weeks I plan to meet the management of the club. We will discuss his future.

"Roman has a Spurs contract and we want to prolong it. We will not even consider any other offers yet."
