Roman Pavlyuchenko has demanded a move from Tottenham.
The Russia striker had been keen this summer to open talks on a new contract, but now says there is little point penning a new deal following Emmanuel Adebayor's arrival at the club.
"My agent is in London," Pavlyuchenko said on Tuesday night. 'He met the chairman Daniel Levy to try to find a way out, but so far there is no solution.
"We gave the option of going out on loan for six months but Levy opposed it. The team have five forwards, and someone will not even get into the squad, so should leave.
"We can find options. I know that Sunderland have been actively interested in me.
"In England, miracles can happen on the last day of the transfer window. So there is hope, but it is very small."
