The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

PAVEL Po­greb­nyak’s three­year stay in Eng­land has come to an end with the striker re­turn­ing back to Rus­sia to join Dy­namo Moscow from Read­ing.

The ex-Ful­ham man, 31, had a year re­main­ing on his deal at the Made­jski, but cut short his stay, hav­ing scored 28 goals in 87 ap­pear­ances for the Roy­als.

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

“His work rate and com­mit­ment to Read­ing 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.”
