Reading land Pogrebnyak, Moyes keen to re-sign Pienaar and Fletcher faces uncertain future
Newly-promoted Reading have revealed the signing of striker Pavel Pogrebnyak.
The BBC reports that the Russian has signed a four-year contract with the Royals after becoming a free agent.
He scored six Premier League goals in the second half of the season for Fulham last year and picked up 18 fantasy football points.
Reading boss Brian McDermott said: "We're delighted. It's been a long process to get Pavel and, now he's officially a Reading player, everyone is looking forward to working with him."
Elsewhere, Sky Sports reports that Everton boss David Moyes has stated his interest in re-signing Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Steven Pienaar following a successful six-month loan deal in the north-west.
Pienaar joined Spurs from Everton for £3m in January 2011 and enjoyed a return spell last season in which he scored four goals and seven assists on his way to 26 fantasy football points.
However, a £5m valuation may prove to be too steep for the Toffees.
"We are keen to re-sign him and I hope in time we would be able to conclude that deal," Moyes said.
In more concrete news for the Everton boss, however, the Daily Record has reported that Moyes has completed the signing of Rangers striker Steven Naismith, securing him on a four-year contract.
Finally, in a report by The Sun, news coming out of Old Trafford is that injury-plagued midfielder Darren Fletcher may not play football again.
The 28-year-old notched up five fantasy football points last season before being diagnosed with a bowel condition in November and his boss is unsure he’ll ever return to full fitness.
"We’ll wait and see about that. Obviously the boy is trying very hard to get back to his level," said Sir Alex Ferguson.
"It’s not going to be easy but we’ll give him every possible chance and see how he does."
