Roman Pavlyuchenko has announced that he will request a transfer from Tottenham Hotspur this January. The reason is that he wants to play for Anzhi Makhachkala or Spartak Moscow to train for Russia in Euro 2012.

The second reason is his belief that Harry Redknapp (Tottenham Hotspur) does not trust him. Pavlyuchenko believes that he is training like the rest of the Spurs but is ignored.

Pavlyuchenko admits to being in touch with Spartak Moscow and wants to go to Anzhi if possible. It remains to be seen what will transpire with this breaking news story.
