Pavlyuchenko seals Lokomotiv switch
Roman Pavlyuchenko has completed his transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Lokomotiv Moscow, the Russian club have confirmed.
Pavlyuchenko today put pen to paper on a three-and-a-half-year deal after the two clubs reached an agreement for the 30-year-old on transfer deadline day.
Although the transfer fee has not been disclosed by either club, it is understood that Lokomotiv have paid £8million for the striker's services.
The Russian had appeared on the verge of leaving Spurs for well over a year and finally was granted a way out of White Hart Lane after manager Harry Redknapp brought in Louis Saha from Everton earlier on deadline day.
Pavlyuchenko joined Spurs from Spartak Moscow in August 2008 and went on to score 42 goals in 113 appearances. He has also had spells at Dynamo Stavropol and Rotor Volgograd, and has scored 20 goals in 45 appearances for Russia.
