Arshavin admits defeat in Spurs transfer saga

Andrei Arshavin's move from Zenit St Petersburg to Tottenham now looks unlikely to happen after the player revealed that he would stay in Russia.

The playmaker has been a long-term target for Spurs boss Juande Ramos, but Zenit have been unable to agree a fee with the North London club.

Arshavin, who was dropped by Zenit for the recent league game against Krylya Sovetov Samara, is currently in Monaco preparing for Friday night's Super Cup clash with Manchester United.

Zenit initially held out for £24million before twice lowering their asking price but Tottenham look to have turned their attention elsewhere, with the capture of Arshavin's international team-mate Roman Pavlyuchenko expected within the next 48 hours.

Spurs are still in the market for another striker, but with Dimitar Berbatov's move to Manchester United also stalling, Arshavin believes he may end up having to stay with the UEFA Cup champions.

'I have a feeling we can put this story to bed,' he told Sport Express.

'I think with the purchase of Pavlyuchenko the idea of Arshavin (moving) to London no longer exists.

When quizzed on whether he saw his future at Zenit, he replied: 'It looks that way.'
