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 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 Franšis 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.
