Loko return Pavluchenko to Russia

Tottenham Hotspur striker, Roman Pavlyuchenko, is reported to have agreed the terms of a personal contract with Russian Premier League side Lokomotiv Moscow.

­According to Sovetsky Sport newspaper, the Russian side are to acquire Pavlychenko for 9 million euro in a three-year deal.

The 29-year-old is expected to join his new team at their upcoming training camp in Portugal.

Super-Pav has played just nine games for the Spurs this season and scored two goals. The striker forward mainly appeared in the cups and Europa League, spending only 18 minutes on the pitch in total in the English Premier League.

Pavlyuchenko has many times expressed his desire to leave the London club, saying he needs more playing time in the view of Russia’s participation at Euro 2012 next summer.

The Russian joined Tottenham from Spartak Moscow for 14 million pounds in 2008, scoring 20 goals in 75 matches for the club since then, but failing to find common ground with his coach, Harry Redknapp.
