Tottenham strikers Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko are happy at White Hart Lane and have no plans to leave North London this summer.

"Of course I'm happy where I am. It's a great club and, in my opinion, it's on the up."

Quotes of the week

England international Crouch endured a tough campaign, scoring just four times in Premier League action, with Harry Redknapp's men missing out on a second season in the UEFA Champions League.

Sunderland are reported to be considering offering £10million in a bid to lure the former Liverpool striker to the North East, with the Black Cats also said to be monitoring Crouch's team-mate Pavlyuchenko.

But the tall forward, who is planning to consider his England future over the summer after falling down the pecking order under Fabio Capello, claims he is not looking to move on to pastures new.

Great club

And Crouch is confident that Redknapp will be looking to strengthen his squad over the summer to keep pace with Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

He said: "Of course I'm happy where I am. It's a great club and, in my opinion, it's on the up.

"We have a lot more to achieve. There's no doubt in the world that every team are going to make themselves stronger and we can't fall behind.

"I'm sure that the manager and chairman have got plans in mind of who they will want to bring in and add that little bit of quality that takes us to maybe that next step."


Pavlyuchenko's agent Oleg Artemov insists the 29-year-old wants to fight for his place at White Hart Lane rather than move on.

Artemov said: "Roman wants to stay at Tottenham. In a couple of weeks I plan to meet the management of the club. We will discuss his future.

"Roman has a Spurs contract and we want to prolong it. We will not even consider any other offers yet."
