Despite rumours leaning towards out of favour striker Roman Pavlyuchenko leaving Tottenham in the January transfer window, manager Harry Redknapp has revealed there is a place for the Russian on the side, provided he works hard to earn it.

"He [Pavlyuchenko] can start games, there’s nothing to stop him from starting," Redknapp said in The Guardian. "If he comes in every day to work, shows a good attitude and if he plays on Tuesday [against Fulham], then I expect him to run around, work hard for the team. If he does that, he’s got terrific ability, then there’s no reason why he can’t be in the team."

The 28-year-old, who scored in Spurs’ 2-2 draw with Leeds United at the weekend, has made just seven appearances in the season so far.
