Russian Striker Linked Again + Bordeaux Striker!

Russian Striker Linked Again + Bordeaux Striker!

The Daily Mail link Fulham, Reading and Villa with Russia striker Pavel Pogrebnyak, one we`ve covered before, see:
AVFC Transfer Talk. Russian Striker Linked (includes wiki links and video)

There are now quotes from the player.

'After three or four months, I feel that I have found my place in England and I want to play in this league. I feel great desire and strength inside me and my age will not work against me. We couldn`t agree anything with Fulham so far but I hope everything will be all right. If I don`t play for Fulham I hope to find another.'

There was also a report in www.footmercato.net linking us with Bordeaux striker Yoan Gouffran with Sunderland also linked.

Wiki says; Yoan Gouffran (born 25 May 1986 in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, Val-de-Marne) is a French footballer of Guadeloupean descent[1] who currently plays for Girondins de Bordeaux of the French Ligue 1. Gouffran plays as a striker and is renowned for his pace and ability to finish with either foot. Gouffran is allergic to grass, his allergy has been described by his coach as "embarrassing" Full: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoan_Gouffran

A rough google translate says he is under contract until June 2013 having joined Bordeaux in 2008.... and after a difficult start to the club, Gouffran comes to a full season under the orders of Fran├žis Gillot with 14 goals in 34 games in Ligue 1. Qualities of speed that characterises his game are quite compatible with the Premier League as Jean-Louis Triaud announced it wanted to degrease its workforce of 31 players for next season.

Probably of zero interest to you but Emile Heskey is being linked with a move to Hull again.

Haha yeah I suppose that that is a worry for a footballer! Though wasn't Balotelli meant to be allergic to grass at some stage? And astonmilan, you must have an appetite similar to cows if you smoke grass??!
