Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak is prepared to drop down into the Championship, following the Royals relegation from the Premier League.

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

The Russian hitman is willing to carry out the remainder of his contract - even if it means playing in the Championship.

"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."
