Pavel Pogrebnyak is desperate to continue his English adventure with Fulham according to the Daily Star, with tomorrow’s edition of the tabloid quoting him as eager to reach agreement with the club over a permanent deal.
The Russian striker, who began his Fulham career in such explosive fashion with a debut goal against Stoke, the winner in the derby at QPR and a hat-trick that sunk Wolves, has initially joined up with Fulham on a short-term deal. With his Stuttgart contract set to expire at the end of the season, some sections of the press have envisaged a real scramble for Pogrebnyak’s signature but the 28 year-old wants to stay at Craven Cottage.
Pogrebnyak admits he has enjoyed working with Martin Jol, who has already stressed that turning the former Zenit St. Petersburg man’s move into a permanent arrangement is one of his major priorities.
That is very nice. I need a coach like Jol. I would love to stay in England and continue to work with him.
A conversation with the club’s leadership will be held in the near future.
