Pogrebnyak Linked To Bolton

Could Reading look to cash in on the Big Russian?

The Times journalist Rory Smith has tweeted that Pavel Pogrebnyak could be on his way to Neil Lennon's Bolton.

The 31-year-old found himself out of favour earlier this season when Glenn Murray joined on loan from Crystal Palace on deadline day of the summer, having also injured himself during his time out of the side.

With Murray returning to Palace and signing a new contract, Steve Clarke has put his faith in the Russian target man to lead the Royals' front line, and has returned the faith put in him with two goals since being restored to the side.

However, with Yakubu joining the club today and it being widely known that Pavel Pogrebnyak is on a extraordinarily high wage, it's not impossible to think that he could be moved on to help balance the books with the club toeing the Financial Fair Play line.

Pogrebnyak has scored 24 times in 90 appearances for Reading FC.

Update: GetReading reporter Charles Watts isn't convinced, reporting on Twitter.
