Villa linked with Pogrebnyak

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish wants to snatch Pavel Pogrebnyak from Fulham, the Daily Mirror say.

The Russian striker has been a massive hit at Craven Cottage since joining Fulham on a deal until the end of the season.

But it is claimed that McLeish is planning a summer bid for him and has already spoken to representatives of the 28-year-old, who will be available on a free transfer in May.

And West Ham have offered Salomon Kalou a move to Upton Park, according to the Daily Express.

Kalou’s Chelsea contract expires in the summer and Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is believed to be keen to sign him.
