Pavel Pogrebnyak has fuelled rumours his switch to Fulham could become long-term after moving into Jose Mourinho’s old house in London.

The striker, who arrived from Stuttgart in January, held a house warming party at the property that is situated close to Craven Cottage.

The deadline day signing during the most recent transfer window has been an instant hit since his arrival at Fulham, netting five times in seven appearances.

The Russia international will be a free agent in the summer when his current contract expires.

“I like my life in London very much,” he told Russian website Tden.

“Branislav Ivanocivc, Ramires and Frank Lampard from Chelsea live in my neighbourhood as well as the players of Fulham.

“Jose Mourinho lived in my house before.”
