Pav happy to commit to Spurs

Russia striker Roman Pavlyuchenko is now happy at Tottenham Hotspur and will not seek a summer transfer away from White Hart Lane.

Pavlyuchenko, 28, was close to the exit door in January with a move to Birmingham City on the cards.

However, following the decision to allow Robbie Keane to join Celtic on loan in January, Pavlyuchenko has risen up the pecking order and he has responded with nine goals in his last 13 appearances.

The former Spartak Moscow striker now claims he has no plans to leave the north London club this summer.

"When the team wins and I am constantly playing the relations cannot be anything but good. Now I feel the manager's trust and do my best not to let him down," he explained.

"I have dropped all my previous ideas about leaving Spurs in the summer and I am concentrated on one thought only – what we need to do to finish fourth."
