FC Ararat Moscow has signed former Spurs forward Roman Pavlyuchenko.
According to Championat.com, Pavlyuchenko has joined the new Moscow-based club on a one-year deal.
Established as a third-tier club in 2017, Ararat has received a license to play in the second league and hopes to play in the Russian Premier League next season. “Other options are not even being considered,” the club’s Vice-President Andranik Keropyan told the website.
The forward was a staple of Tottenham’s forward-line between 2008 and 2011.
Since leaving North London at the end of the 2010-11 season, Pavlyuchenko has turned out for a handful of relatively well-known clubs, such as Lokomotiv Moscow, Kuban Krasnodar and Ural.
The 35-year-old has been a free-agent since leaving Ural at the end of last season.
