Striker makes fresh Cottage stay claim
Pavel Pogrebnyak has boosted Fulham by reiterating his desire to sign a long-term deal with them at the end of the current season.
The 28-year-old Russian international striker has been a huge hit at Craven Cottage since he joined the club on loan from German Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart in the January transfer window with six goals in 10 Premier League appearances.
Cottagers' boss Martin Jol has always insisted that he would like to keep hold of Pogrebnyak in the summer, while other Premier League sides, such as Aston Villa, have been alerted by the fact he will be available to sign on a Bosman free transfer at the end of the season.
However, after news leaked that Pogrebnyak had moved into Jose Mourinho's former home in London last month, the player has now again confirmed his desire to stay with the Londoners.
"I would like to stay in England, in Fulham," Pogrebnyak told RIA Novosti. "That's what we are working on now."
