Tottenham boss Redknapp hopes to do Pavlyuchenko business next week

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits Roman Pavlyuchenko could be offloaded next week.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits Roman Pavlyuchenko could be offloaded next week.

Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane and Peter Crouch are Redknapp's first-choice strikers at the moment and Pavlyuchenko will be allowed to leave if the club receive an adequate offer.

"I've got four strikers at moment and I don't want five," Redknapp said. "I think I'll end the season with these four, although that could change next week, you never know, but it's more than likely that's how we will go."

Spartak Moscow are interested in signing the Russia striker after selling him to Spurs at the start of last season.

Spartak director of football Dmitri Popov said: "Now everything depends upon Tottenham. If they make just a step in our direction, the problem with Roman's transfer will be solved.

"Some other teams want to sign him, too. But as far as I know if Pavlyuchenko returns to Russia, he would prefer to come back to Spartak."
