Forward plays down exit reports

Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak says he isn't thinking about leaving the Madejski Stadium and would be happy to stay put.

The Russian forward was one of the Royals' star signings last summer after they beat off competition from a host of clubs to secure the former Stuttgart and Fulham player on a free transfer.

The 29-year-old signed a four-year contract, reportedly worth £40,000-a-week, and has been tipped to leave Reading following their relegation to the Championship.

Despite only scoring eight goals in the Premier League this season, recent speculation has suggested a number of clubs are tracking the Russia international.

Pogrebnyak has now moved to calm fears about his future by insisting he would be happy to stay with Reading for the remainder of his contract.

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

"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."
