Despite only managing to score eight goals this season, Pogrebnyak is in demand and is reportedly being tracked by other clubs.

He told Sport Express: "So far I don't know anything about my future. It'd be great to stay in England."

The Russian hitman, who joined Reading from Fulham, says he is willing to carry out the remainder of his contract - even if it means playing in the Championship.

"I've a four-year long contract with Reading so how could I say I don't want to play here? If it happens like this then I'll play in the Championship.

"We'll talk about my future with Anton Zingarevich in the near future."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
