Roman Pavlyuchenko leaves Tottenham for Lokomotiv Moscow

Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has completed his move from Tottenham to Lokomotiv Moscow for a fee believed to be in the region of £8m.

The 30-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal.

Spurs sanctioned Pavlyuchenko's exit on transfer deadline day as they completed a deal for French forward Louis Saha  from Everton.

Pavlyuchenko joined Spurs from Spartak Moscow  in August 2008 and scored 42 goals in 113 appearances.

"We thank Roman for his contribution and wish him every success for the future," read a Tottenham statement.
