Pavel Pogrebnyak: Remains a part of the Reading squad

The Russian striker has played just seven minutes in the Championship so far this season and has been quoted as saying he would be interested in a return home, while he does not feel he is suited to the style of football played in the second tier.

Adkins can understand Pogrebnyak's frustration and his desire to play at a higher level, and will listen to any offers that come in for the player.

However, he has suggested that no departure is imminent and that he is happy to have Pogrebnyak at his disposal.

"Pav is in a situation where he hasn't started the opening two games of the season," said Adkins in the Reading Post. "He's used to being in the Premier League, that's where he wants to be.

"But he's still with us and that's going to be the case until we're told otherwise.

"If something happens or materialises, as with all of the players, then you cross that bridge when you come to it."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
