Pogrebnyak refusing to discuss Reading future
Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has dismissed speculation linking him with a summer move. West Ham and Southampton are rumoured to be keen on the 29-year-old Russian, with reports suggesting the clubs have held unofficial talks with Reading over the striker.
He told Russian website Sport Express: "It's b******t, nonsense. I haven't heard anything about it and I don't want to comment any transfer news until the end of the championship.
"We'll talk everything over with president Anton Zingarevich at the end of the season. But we won't be relegated."
The striker went on to dismiss reports Rubin Kazan were poised to sign him in the January transfer window.
He added: "It's a nonsense again. Look at my answer for the first question."
