Reading grateful to Pogrebnyak as he completes Dynamo Moscow move

Championship club Reading have thanked striker Pavel Pogrebnyak for his contributions to the club as he completes his move to Dynamo Moscow.


The 31-year-old, who was in his last year of contract at the Madejski Stadium, scored 28 goals during his three-year stay with the club but has opted to return to Russia.

Royals manager Steve Clarke said: "In the second half of last season Pavel was a key player in my team and made a vital contribution.

"His work rate and commitment to Reading FC were a big plus for me. Now he has the opportunity of a great move back to Russia, I can only thank him for his efforts and wish him well for the future."

Director of Football Nick Hammond added: "We have been in discussions with Dynamo over the last couple of weeks, this move represents a good opportunity for Pavel to move back home.

"I would like to place on record that Pavel is a true gentleman, he always gave his best for Reading Football Club and we wish him well."
