Roman Pavlyuchenko has no plans to leave Tottenham and is keen to extend his contract at White Hart Lane, according to his agent.

The Russia international has struggled at times for regular first-team starts due to Harry Redknapp's attacking options.

Pavlyuchenko has to compete with Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch for a berth in the XI with Rafael van der Vaart often employed in a forward role.

That has led to suggestions that the former Spartak Moscow man could be ready to leave the North London club and seek a new challenge.

"We don't care about any other offers because Roman wants to stay in London, his heart belongs to Tottenham."

But the 29-year-old's agent, Oleg Artemov, insists that his client is only interested in agreeing new terms with Spurs when they return from their pre-season tour to South Africa.

Artemov told Sovetskiy Sport: "We haven't talked about Roman's future with Tottenham yet. The team is in South Africa at the moment and then we'll negotiate about his contract extension.

"We don't care about any other offers because Roman wants to stay in London, his heart belongs to Tottenham."
