Lokomotiv Moscow fear that their hopes of signing Roman Pavlyuchenko may be over.
The Tottenham forward nearly made the move back to his native Russia in a Â£10million deal in January, but impressed on his return to the Spurs starting line-up.
‘The situation has changed,’ said Lokomotiv head coach Yuri Semin. ‘I’m afraid it will be difficult to get Pavlyuchenko.
‘His team qualified for the Champions League and he regained the coach’s confidence. ‘In any case, we can’t get hung up on one player. We definitely need one more forward to strengthen the attack.’
