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."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
