Roman Pavlyuchenko could yet remain in the Premier League after his agent admitted that he is not certain to sign for Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow.
It had been reported that the striker had already agreed personal terms with the Moscow-based side and that Spurs were simply waiting to hear the clubs offer.
However, it now seems as though Pavlyuchenko could still remain in England with both Newcastle United and QPR interested in signing the Russian international.
"Roman has one-and-a-half years left on his contract with Tottenham," Oleg Artemov told Sport Express. "And who found out that it's Lokomotiv that has agreed anything with him?
"He hasn't signed anything. There are more offers. We are learning, analysing and talking about them."
Artemov was also quizzed on whether Lokomotiv were the only Russian side to make an offer, saying: "It's not true. This is not the reality."
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is keen to further strengthen his attacking options in the New Year, while QPR manager Neil Warncock wants the striker to help fire the club to safety.
The 29-year-old cost £14million in the summer of 2008 and Tottenham would like to make back the vast majority of that sum.
