Harry Redknapp admits that he would rather have three stikers at Tottenham, clearing the way for Roman Pavlyuchenkoâ€™s departure.
The Russian forward has played only around 60 minutes of Premier League football this season and is frustrated with life at White Hart Lane.
Redknapp said: â€œI never seem to get Pav on the pitch, which is hard on him.
â€œTechnically he is a very good player, but when people say Iâ€™ve got four very good strikers, Iâ€™d rather have just three, because of the problems four cause.
â€œIn todayâ€™s football, you could play with just one striker, with Luka Modric or Niko Kranjcar playing off him.
â€œSo with four it is too many. Pav is finding it hard to deal with, but what can I do?
â€œAnd if someone comes in for Pav, I wouldnâ€™t necessarily look to replace him, no.â€
