Zenit target Pogrebnyak eager for Reading survival

Pavel Pogrebnyak insists he is focused on the job at hand with Reading and not thinking about his future.

The 29-year old Russian striker is being linked with a summer return to former club Zenit St Petersburg but he says he is solely absorbed in helping the second-bottom Royals avoid relegation.

"Nothing," said Pogrebnyak when asked by Sport-Express regarding the Zewnit rumours.

"The season is not over, so it would be too soon to talk about the future.

"Now, I focus on helping Reading to get important points in the Premier League."

Pogrebnyak signed a four-year deal with Reading last summer after a successful six-month stint with Fulham. He has since scored five goals in 22 appearances for the Berkshire club.
