Tottenham striker Pavlyuchenko missed out on Porto move

Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko failed to get his Champions League move away last night.

The Russia international had declared in the morning his agent was in talks with Spurs about a transfer.

A Bola says Porto saw Pavlyuchenko as a replacement for Atletico Madrid mega bucks signing Radamel Falcao, while offers from Espanyol and Lokomotiv Moscow were also on the table.

But it's understood the sale of Peter Crouch to Stoke City saw manager Harry Redknapp shut the door on Pav getting his move away.
