Gudjohnsen's move to Spurs spells end for Pavlyuchenko

EIDUR GUDJOHNSEN could make his Spurs debut at Birmingham tomorrow and put even greater pressure on attacking places at White Hart Lane.

The former Chelsea and Barca striker, now 31, was undergoing a medical at Spurs last night and should be available at St Andrews.

However, five strikers could become four with Birmingham boss Alex McLeish confirming his interest in Roman Pavlyuchenko.

Tottenham have asked for £10m with a further £3m in add-ons. If moves for the Russian fail, McLeish will turn his attention to £4m Lens striker Aruna Dindane, who is on loan at Portsmouth. Spurs are also looking at Pompey's Younes Kaboul and Asmir Begovic.

West Brom have agreed a deal with Feyenoord for Dutch international Andwele Slory.

Luis Jiminez has left West Ham following his loan spell from Inter Milan, in order to sign for Parma.

MANCHESTER CITY look set to miss out on Fernando Gago due to Real Madrid's reluctance to sell.

JUVENTUS are to appoint Claudio Gentile as interim manager before they step up attempts to persuade Rafael Benitez to join them.

NEWCASTLE are in talks with Birmingham centre-back Martin Taylor over a loan move, whilst Portsmouth are trying to re-sign Gary O'Neil from Boro on loan.

PEDRO MENDES' move from Rangers to Sporting Lisbon has collapsed due to wage demands.
