Pavlyuchenko wants regular football

Tottenham Hotspur striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has claimed he is attracting interest from Sunderland.

• Modric stays, Cahill a target

Pavlyuchenko, 29, has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular at White Hart Lane and remains eager to secure regular playing time, but he accepts the chances of a move at this stage are remote.

"My agent is in London," he told the Daily Mail. "He met the chairman Daniel Levy to try to find a way out, but so far there is no solution.

"We gave the option of going out on loan for six months but Levy opposed it. The team have five forwards, and someone will not even get into the squad, so I should leave. We can find options. I know that Sunderland have been actively interested in me.

"In England, miracles can happen on the last day of the transfer window, so there is hope, but it is very small."

He added: "I still want to stay and extend my contract, especially since everything suits me at Tottenham - everything except playing time. When I am not allowed on the pitch, renewing the contract doesn't make sense."

Pavlyuchenko joined Spurs in 2008 from Spartak Moscow.
