Fulham striker Pavel Pogrebnyak wants to stay at Craven Cottage beyond his current deal and is targeting silverware with the Premier League side.

The Russia international joined the Cottagers on an initial six-month contract from Bundesliga side Stuttgart on the final day of the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old has made a bright start to life in West London, scoring twice in his first two games for the club.

Pogrebnyak hopes to extend his stay and is determined to help Fulham win trophies.

No regrets

Speaking to Russia's Sports Daily, Pogrebnyak said: "I can't complain, things have started very well.

"The move was very difficult. I had to think, first because I was relocating my family, and also because I was offered a contract only for six months. Now, of course, I have no regrets.

"I wanted to sign a long-term contract. The club wanted to see how I would adapt in the Premier League, because the German and English championships are very different. The management wanted to play safe.

"I think I can win something with Fulham. We have a chance to qualify for the Europa League, and in England there are many cups."
