Remy agent rejects Pav swap deal talk

ESPN staff

Marseille will not swap forward Loic Remy for Tottenham's Roman Pavlyuchenko, according to the Frenchman's agent, who said: "I don't think Marseille want to lose a Ferrari and bring in a Citroen 2CV".

Remy has long been linked with a Premier League switch, with clubs including Stoke City, Liverpool and Arsenal all reportedly interested in the player before he made the move to the Stade Velodrome in the summer of 2010.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is believed to be prepared to sell the unfavoured Pavlyuchenko in January as long as he can bring in a suitable replacement - but Remy's agent Frederic Guerra has laughed off any suggestion that the two players may be involved in an exchange deal.

"Loic is not a player you just swap," Guerra said, according to The Sun. "Besides, I don't think Marseille want to lose a Ferrari and bring in a Citroen 2CV."

Guerra admits that he will have to inform Remy of any offers from the north London club, but feels the emerging France international should wait until after next summer's European Championships, when he should receive more attractive propositions, before making any decisions about his future.

"Spurs have a good eye for a deal. If they contact me, I'll be obliged to pass the information on to Loic. But as his advisor I'll tell him to stay put," Guerra added.

"He's got Euro 2012 coming up and could have 10, 15 or 20 clubs coming in for him next summer."

Pavlyuchenko has made just two substitute appearances for Tottenham this season.
