    Pavlyuchenko: Eyeing a move away from Tottenham
    ROMAN PAVLYUCHENKO EYES SPURS EXIT

    Roman Pavlyuchenko has again spoken of his frustration at a lack of first-team football at Tottenham.
    The Russian striker has hit out at manager Harry Redknapp over a lack of playing time which could see him miss out on Euro 2012.
    "I don't believe I can fight my way into the Tottenham starting line-up. Players can feel what the manager thinks about them, and I know that the manager doesn't count on me these days.
    "I don't know whether Redknapp is telling the truth when he says he doesn't want to lose me. I guess he is not telling the truth.
    "Something must change. I must play in order not to miss Euro 2012," added Pavlyuchenko, who has made just two substitute appearances this season.
    "I don't know whether the club will execute that option [to sell me], but a good offer would definitely be considered."

    Terry and Ferdinand clashed on Sunday
    QPR DENY PLAYERS GAVE EVIDENCE

    QPR have categorically denied Paddy Kenny, Clint Hill and Shaun Derry had been called to give evidence in the John Terry racism inquiry.
    More than one report has suggested the Rangers trio were set to back team-mate Anton Ferdinand's take on his altercation with Chelsea captain Terry during Sunday's west London derby at Loftus Road.
    All three are understood to be furious their names have been dragged into the saga, with Derry not even on the field of play when the alleged incident took place.
    A QPR spokesman told Press Association Sport: "There is no truth in these stories whatsoever.
    "None of the three players have been called to give evidence or will be called to give evidence."
    Tuesday night saw the Football Association launch a probe into allegations Terry racially abused Ferdinand towards the end of Chelsea's 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at Loftus Road.
    The Metropolitan Police were on Thursday also still assessing an anonymous complaint from the member of the public.
    Terry has firmly denied using a racist slur against Ferdinand after video footage emerged on Sunday showing him uttering what some have interpreted as such.
    Terry admitted using the words he was said to have uttered but insisted they came in the form of a denial after Ferdinand accused him of a racist comment.
    The camera shot of Terry was obstructed at a crucial juncture by the defender's Chelsea and England team-mate Ashley Cole, who is expected to be a key witness in the investigation.
    However, it is understood Ferdinand has told QPR he was entirely unaware of any race row until after Sunday's game, when Terry approached him to clear the air.
    It is this uncertainty which prompted Rangers to refer the matter to the FA in an attempt to clear it up once and for all.
    However, racism claims in football are notoriously hard to prove, even when the alleged victim is convinced they were abused.
    Terry is set to remain England captain during the FA probe, even if it continues into next month's friendly double-header with Spain and Sweden.
    That could prove extremely awkward should Ferdinand's older brother Rio earn an international recall, especially as Terry regained the armband from the Manchester United star after being stripped of it following allegations about an affair with the ex-partner of Wayne Bridge.
    Being found guilty of racism would have even more serious consequences both on and off the field for Terry.
    As well as a fine and/or suspension, his very international future would be in jeopardy as well as his position as Chelsea captain.
    There would also be the threat of criminal prosecution.

    Tevez: Reportedly considering suing Roberto Mancini
    CITY MAINTAIN SILENCE OVER TEVEZ

    Manchester City are maintaining their silence as they await Carlos Tevez's next move in their increasing bitter dispute with the player.
    Tevez appears likely to appeal against City's decision to fine him four weeks' wages - believed to be around 800,000 - for allegedly refusing to play against Bayern Munich last month.
    The Argentinian maintains he only refused to warm up at the Allianz Arena and it is reported he is considering suing City manager City Roberto Mancini for defamation over the matter.
    There have been suggestions City could counter-sue the player due to his diminishing value but the club would not comment on Thursday morning on that possibility.
    Mancini also would not answer questions on the Tevez subject after Wednesday night's Carling Cup fourth-round win at Wolves.
    City issued a hard-worded statement on Tuesday evening detailing the five breaches of contract they believe Tevez to have committed.
    They are now waiting to hear formally if Tevez will exercise his right to appeal but with 14 days from the judgement to make clear his intentions, there is no immediate rush.
    The 27-year-old and his representatives want to take full stock of their options.
    In the meantime, while Tevez is theoretically eligible for selection, he is likely to remain an isolated figure.
    The former West Ham and Manchester United player has been training alone since returning from a suspension while the initial investigation into the affair was conducted a fortnight ago.
    The club are determined to take a hard line over the matter and will not countenance a cheap sale in January.
    It is understood City will hold Tevez to the remainder of his contract, which expires in 2014, if necessary.
    Mancini will decide what becomes of the player and, after a conversation with the Italian on Tuesday, chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak will give him his full backing.
    City valued Tevez at 40million when a move to Brazilian club Corinthians collapsed in the summer and will only accept a similar fee.
    People in Tevez's camp believe they may have a case to sue Mancini for defamation of character over the manager's immediate post-match comments in Munich.
    Mancini said Tevez would not come on as a substitute during the second half of the 2-0 defeat and was "finished" at the club as a result.
    With Tevez insisting that was not the case, and considering that he has only been charged with a failure to resume warming up, he is seeking legal advice.
    Going down that route is a high-risk strategy, according to one legal expert.
    Anthony Sakrouge, head of employment practice at Russell-Cooke Solicitors in London, said: "Employees are often looking for ways to bring claims which are not subject to any financial cap, although it is highly unusual for an employee to sue his line manager for defamation.
    "Mr Tevez would appear to have other options, if he considers (as he appears to) that the club has placed itself in breach of the implied term of trust and confidence.
    "In the meantime it is certainly true, as has been observed generally, that the proposed defamation claim would be very awkward and potentially very divisive for the club.
    "Against that, the bringing of such a claim could also in some circumstances justify an employer terminating an employee's contract, particularly if the employee is eventually disbelieved."

    Rodgers: Signed Richards to a new deal
    NEW CONTRACT FOR JAZZ RICHARDS

    Highly-rated Swansea defender Jazz Richards has signed a new 18-month contract at the Liberty Stadium.
    The Wales Under-21 international recently made his Premier League debut as a substitute in the 3-1 defeat at Norwich, having impressed when called upon during last season's promotion campaign.
    The 20-year-old has come through the youth ranks with the south Wales club and is pleased to have agreed terms.
    He told the club website, www.swanseacity.net: "I am delighted to have agreed a new contract.
    "I've really enjoyed being part of the squad and I feel I am developing all the time.
    "It was always my dream to play for my home town club, so you can imagine what playing for the club in the Premier League means. It was only a brief appearance against Norwich, but it was an amazing experience despite the result."
    Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has also strengthened his backroom staff with the arrival of Glen Driscoll in the role of performance consultant.
    Driscoll, 36, recently left Chelsea after 10 years ar Stamford Bridge, during which he worked with the likes of Jose Mourinho, Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti.
    Driscoll will oversee and support the medical and performance departments at the Swans until further notice, and he is already working to solve the nerve problems that have affected skipper Garry Monk.
    Rodgers said: "He's got a great background and tremendous experience and expertise.
    "He is unique in the fact that he is a specialist in both medical and physical conditioning.
    "His expertise will help both departments of the club and his arrival is a massive boost for us."

    Liptak: Won't be signing for Brighton
    NO SEAGULLS DEAL FOR LIPTAK

    Brighton have opted not to offer a contract to Hungary international Zoltan Liptak.
    The big centre-half has been on trial with the south-coast side over the past week in a bid to land a deal with manager Gus Poyet attempting to beef up his squad.
    But Poyet is now set to look elsewhere for reinforcements.
    "He did very, very well. He trained well," Poyet told The Argus.
    "It was a tough decision but he was not ready to play 90 minutes on Saturday, for example, and he's not what we are looking for in that position."

    McCarthy: Backed by Moxey
    MOXEY STANDS BY McCARTHY

    Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey has given his backing to under-fire manager Mick McCarthy ahead of the Carling Cup clash with Manchester City.
    McCarthy branded as "mindless idiots" the supporters who chanted "you don't know what you're doing" and "you're getting sacked in the morning" towards him during the weekend draw with Swansea.
    But Moxey has reaffirmed his faith in the former Republic of Ireland boss in the club's matchday programme for the fourth-round encounter with City.
    He said: "We remain well aware of fans' frustrations and disappointment in the wake of recent results.
    "But we all put our trust in Mick and the players and, over the last five years, they have delivered emphatically.
    "So it remains 'business as usual' and we continue to look forward forward with optimism and to build on Saturday's dramatic comeback.
    "The changes Mick made on Saturday, and is often the case with his substitutions, ultimately provided a positive outcome as we hit back to take a point."
    Moxey respects the right of fans to voice their opinions but believes negative support can have a detrimental effect on the team.
    He said: "Sometimes the mood in the crowd creates a pressure on the home team and which can affect players' confidence and performance.
    "No-one would want to stifle the passion with which our fans back the team and it has underpinned many of our successes we have enjoyed under Mick.
    "It is always easier to support a team and get behind them when everything is going well but much more difficult when the team are going through something of a struggle.
    "In an ideal world it is better to support the team during the 90 minutes and then - if fans feel it necessary - to make their feelings known after the final whistle."

    Arsene Wenger: Spoke at Arsenal's AGM
    RALLYING CALL FROM ARSENE WENGER

    Arsene Wenger has issued an impassioned rallying call at Arsenal's Annual General Meeting - urging everyone at the club to stay united behind the team.
    The Gunners have slowly recovered form with seven wins from the last eight games as they reached the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup and moved top of their Champions League group following what was the most testing spell of Wenger's 15-season tenure - during which they were thumped 8-2 at Manchester United and slumped down the Barclays Premier League table.
    While more tough challenges lie ahead, starting at rivals Chelsea on Saturday, Wenger remains adamant the future is bright if all Gunners fans continue to keep the faith.
    "I can see a lot of fear and discontent among you and I can understand that because we live in a world where we fight with people who have extremely high resources," said Wenger, who spoke for more than 10 minutes at the end of what had been a sometimes spiky meeting where majority shareholder Stan Kroenke gave his first speech since completing a takeover.
    "The way we can compete is to try to be intelligent, but as well to be united because it is very difficult to be consistent in football. We have been more consistent than anybody else in the world in the last 15 years.
    "To stay at the top, top level, we have to be united.
    "That doesn't mean I am not to be criticised. I accept that is part of my job and that the board has been criticised, but to the outside we have to show we are united because that is the only way to survive at the top.
    "It is difficult enough if you are united. If you are not united, you have no chance.
    "We defend values as well that at the time are questioned - the self-sufficient model. Do we want to change that or not? I believe, and I take full responsibility for this, that we can be competitive the way we run the club."
    Wenger, who turned 62 earlier this month, admitted the bitter disappointments of last season - where his young side imploded after a shock Carling Cup final defeat to Birmingham at Wembley - had lingered on, but must now be put to the back of everyone's minds as Arsenal look to fight their way back into the top four of the Premier League and into the latter stages of the European campaign.
    The Gunners boss added: "We had a very difficult start to the season and were under tremendous pressure.
    "We started at the Emirates [Stadium] with a very difficult environment because people were very sceptical.
    "But they understood two things - if they do not get behind the team, we have no chance and secondly people realise this team has the right attitude and spirit.
    "Even during the difficult periods in the last few home games, the fans have been absolutely fantastic behind the team, what we had not seen at the end of the season.
    "It is time to realise that yes, times are more difficult, but yes we can still be successful under one condition, that we all stand behind the team, and are united.
    "At the end of the season, we will see where we stand.
    "If we give absolutely everything and do fight together for every single game in every single competition, we can still look back at the end of the season and be proud of our attitude and what we have achieved."
    Wenger concluded: "I would personally like to turn round the scepticism that is surrounding this club at the moment. For me it is too high.
    "If I just would like to achieve one thing today it is trust us, this team has qualities, this team will fight - and if you help us to do that I think we will have a successful season."
    Meanwhile, Wenger said he was confident captain Robin van Persie would sign a new contract.
    Van Persie's contract runs out in 2013 and Wenger said: "He has 18 months to go and I'm confident he'll sign a new deal. I'm always confident."

    Rodallega: In discussions over new deal
    MARTINEZ - RODALLEGA TALKS ONGOING

    Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has reiterated his stance that ongoing contract talks with striker Hugo Rodallega will eventually come to fruition.
    Rodallega's current deal with the Latics expires at the end of the season and the Colombia international has been linked with a move out of the DW Stadium.
    The 26-year-old joined Wigan from Mexican club Necaxa in January 2009 and has established himself as a key player in Martinez's schemes.
    Martinez expressed his optimism last week of reaching an agreement with Rodallega over a new deal, has once again said that progress will be made in due time.
    "We all know how much he has improved over the last few seasons and how important he has been for Wigan Athletic," enthused the 38-year-old. "He is attached to Wigan and we all want him to be happy at the club.
    "He has a massive role (to play at Wigan). He wants to see Wigan winning the next football game and we need his type of characters here.
    "But it is something (signing a new contract) that will take some time. There are certain logistics of his situation. He has a Colombian agent and that takes a bit of time."

    Ryan Bennett: Has been in impressive form this season
    FRY COOLS BENNETT TALK

    Director of football Barry Fry has calmed speculation linking Ryan Bennett with a move away from Peterborough in the near future.
    Bennett, who joined Posh two years ago from Grimsby, has been in impressive form this season and has made his England Under-21 debut.
    The highly-rated centre-half has attracted the interest of Arsenal and Tottenham and Fry has confirmed he has previously discussed Bennett with the Premier League rivals.
    However, after Bennett signed a new contract at London Road in the summer, Fry is not concerned about the prospect of the player leaving when the transfer window reopens.
    "Arsenal and Spurs have been tracking Ryan for a couple of years now," Fry told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph. "I have had conversations with them and with half-a-dozen other clubs, but it's only talk so far and I wouldn't expect that to change any time soon. Ryan recently signed a fresh deal with us. He's happy here and he loves working for our manager.
    "Obviously if someone bid 10million that new contract wouldn't mean a lot! But that isn't likely to happen.
    "There is no rush because Ryan is just going to get better and better. He's playing in a great standard of football now and has looked very impressive."

    Andrew Johnson: Negotiations with Fulham
    JOL REVEALS JOHNSON DEAL ISSUES

    Fulham manager Martin Jol admits the length of contract is the stumbling block in their negotiations with Andrew Johnson as they look to agree an extended deal with the striker.
    The 30-year-old has looked sharp for the Cottagers this season, scoring a hat-trick against QPR and six goals in the Europa League.
    Johnson's current contract runs out of the end of the season and his future has been the subject of much debate, with QPR amongst those linked as possible destinations.
    While both parties have confirmed they want to sign a new deal, Jol revealed today there is an issue over contract length.
    "We will talk to him again," he said.
    "I talk to him every day and tell him what the difference is between one-and-a-half [until the end of the 2012/13 season] and two years [until the end of 2013/14] but he doesn't agree.
    "He wants this year and another two years which is what we're arguing about."
