Stuttgart striker Pavel Pogrebnyak says his future at Fulham is up to the Londoners.

Pogrebnyak is tied to Fulham until June.

"Martin Jol was very clear when I arrived," said Russian. "My mission is to help the team with goals but he insisted I played without putting extra pressure on myself and I intend following what he said.

"It was always a dream to play in England because of football's history here and the quality of the clubs.

"That's why I chose to come here despite offers from other countries.

"Whether I stay next season or nor depends on Fulham but I am happy here and if things don't change I want to stay.

"I never fix a concrete figure on how many goals I might score — but if I get 10 I will be very happy."
