Rumour has suggested QPR are interested in Pavlyuchenko, who was linked with a move away from White Hart Lane in the summer.

The Russia international ultimately remained at Spurs, but so far this Premier League campaign he has made just one substitute appearance, sparking further conjecture over his future.

However, Pavlyuchenko's agent, Oleg Artemov, told Sport Express: "This is the first time I've heard about the interest of QPR. We haven't talked to this team and neither with those teams which are called 'potential buyers' in the press.

"Maybe these rumours are spread by Tottenham president (Daniel) Levy. Will he (Pavlyuchenko) leave the team in January? We shouldn't say anymore at the moment."
