Tottenham star seeks first team football

Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has stated that he wants changes in his current situation, and that he is unhappy at limited first-team opportunities at White Hart Lane.

The Russia international has been used sparingly from the bench by Harry Redknapp this term, with the majority of his starts coming in the Europa League rather than domestically.

Pavlyuchenko scored the winner in a 1-0 win over Rubin Kazan last Thursday in Europe, but was an unused substitute in the 2-1 win over Blackburn on Sunday.

With Emmanuel Adebayor, Rafael van der Vaart and Jermain Defoe seemingly ahead of him in the Spurs pecking order, the eastern European is not happy with his chances at the moment.

“I want changes,” the forward told

“My new situation is not simple at the moment. We’re getting very close to the European Championship. I have to make a decision.”

Harry Redknapp has admitted in the recent past that he will listen to offers for the hitman come January, and with the form of the attacking players ahead of him, Pavlyuchenko does not look likely to break into the Tottenham first team any time soon.
