Roman Pavlyuchenko has yet again spoken of his desire to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window.
And the Russian forward has signalled a preference to return to his native Russia, rather than another new country.
Pavlyuchenko has only been with Spurs for 15 months, but finding himself consigned to the bench has been a source of frustration for him.
He has made it clear that he intends to depart London in January and wants to return home.
“I have a huge desire to return home.
“I’m prepared to accept any decent offer from Russia.
“It seems Tottenham is now a turned page for me.
“I don’t expect the situation to change for the better. Six months ago, I landed on the bench. I immediately made it clear I did not want to be there.
“The manager kept saying he relied on me, but nothing changed. I need to find a way out of this.”
Despite the situation he currently finds himself in, Pavlyuchenko has no regrets about moving to England, feeling it has been beneficial to his career.
“In my first year there, I played a lot, scored often and was successful with my national team.
“I had an insight into English football which helped me to understand a lot of new things.
“So I do not have any regrets. But my present situation doesn’t suit me.”
