Roman Pavlyuchenko’s agent has confirmed that Tottenham and Birmingham City are in talks over a move for the Russian striker and that a deal is “70-75%” likely to happen on transfer deadline day.
Pavlyuchenko’s future at White Hart Lane has been in some doubt for months now and the signing of Eidur Gudjohnsen from Monaco has left Harry Redknapp with five strikers at his disposal.
Pavlyuchenko’s agent, Dr Oliver Wendt, is hopeful that a resolution will be found that will allow the Russia international to join Birmingham and secure regular first-team football.
“We are talking to Birmingham and the problem is the transfer money,” Wendt told ESPNsoccernet. “Both clubs are talking about money right now and I hope they find a way and Roman will move to Birmingham.
“I hope it will be done in the next two or three hours. I think 70% it will be done. You never know, something in the last minute something might happen. It is 70-75%.”
