Spurs Snare £12m Pavlyuchenko - Report

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly wrapped up the signing of Roman Pavlyuchenko from Spartak Moscow Pavlyuchenko shocked Europe yesterday when, only days after intimating his desire to stay in Russia, he announced that he would be joining Spurs. And The Sun has backed up the 26-year-old's declaration by claiming that the Lilywhites have in fact agreed a £12million deal with Spartak. The Mostovskoy-born striker is almost certainly a direct replacement for Dimitar Berbatov, who now appears destined to complete his dream switch to Manchester United after falling out with his team-mates and manager Juande Ramos. The ex-Rotor Volgograd player will tussle with Darren Bent for a spot in the starting XI at White Hart Lane, as Ramos seems to prefer using a lone target-man supported by the likes of Giovani dos Santos and Luka Modric. The Londoners had been keen on Pavlyuchenko's international team-mate, Andrei Arshavin, but they dropped their interest after Zenit St. Petersburg jacked up their asking price. Pavlyuchenko will arrive in the English capital today to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms.
