- The Championship
Pogrebnyak eyes move to Premier League
Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has said he wants to either stay in the Premier League or return to Russian football - and his agent reports that there is interest from top-flight clubs.
Pogrebnyak, 29, moved to Berkshire on a free transfer from Stuttgart last summer but scored only five times as the Royals were unable to avoid dropping straight back into the Championship.
The Russia international had a relegation release clause in his contract and it appears inevitable that he will move on before the transfer window closes.
He told sovsport.ru: "It is true that my dream is to continue my career in England, in the Premier League. But I wouldn't rule out a move to Russia.
"The best moments of my career are from the Russian championship. So anything can happen."
