White Hart Lane nightmare over for Russian forward.
Lokomotiv Moscow have confirmed the signing of Roman Pavlyuchenko from Tottenham Hotspur.
Pavlyuchenko on Friday put pen to paper on a three-and-a-half-year deal after the two clubs reached an agreement for the 30-year-old on transfer deadline day.
Although the transfer fee has not been disclosed by either club, it is understood that Lokomotiv have paid £8million for the striker’s services.
“Russia striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has signed a contract with the Lokomotiv,” read a statement on Lokomotiv’s official website.
“The agreement with the striker is for three-and-a-half years.”

Roman Pavlyuchenko must be glad to have finally left Tottenham after failing to convince Harry Redknapp of his worth over the past few seasons. The 30 year old Russian arrived at the North London club following a successful Euro 2008 and now finds himself leaving ahead of the 2012 finals.
Pavlyuchenko made 114 appearances for Spurs, netting a healthy 42 goals, all the more impressive given that the former Spartak Moscow man only started 71 matches for the Premier League side.
Harry Redknapp clearly felt he could afford to cash in on the big forward once he secure Louis Saha on a loan deal.
