Roman Pavlyuchenko doesn't want to leave Tottenham.

The Daily Star Sunday says Pavlyuchenko, 29, wants to stay at Spurs, even though he only started 25 out of 53 matches last season. He still notched 14 goals, making him the club's second-highest scorer last term.

But his lack of action fuelled speculation that he would return to Spartak Moscow.

Contract talks have so far failed to result in an extension beyond his current deal, which runs out in 2013.
