Fulham striker Pavel Pogrebnyak admits he wants a long-term deal.

After two goals in two games for Martin Jol's side, he is already dreaming of winning silverware with the Cottagers next year.

"I can't complain, things have started very well," he told Russia's Sports Daily. "The move was very difficult. I had to think, first because I was relocating my family, and also because I was offered a contract only for six months. Now, of course, I have no regrets.

"I wanted to sign a long-term contract. The club wanted to see how I would adapt in the Premier League, because the German and English championships are very different. The management wanted to play safe."
