Spurs boss Redknapp insists he's happy with Pavlyuchenko

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says Roman Pavlyuchenko can form a good partnership with new signing Jermain Defoe.

Redknapp told the Sunday Times: "I'm pleased with him. He has scored some terrific goals and is in good form.

"On the training ground this morning, I thought there was a defender behind him, man-marking, but it turned out to be his interpreter, telling him what we were saying to him. Conversation between him and Jermain should be interesting but I see them as a good pair. I think they'll work well together. Jermain needs to play with a partner. He's not a lone striker."
