Fulham are ready to fight to secure Pavel Pogrebnyak in the summer as they have the competition of Aston Villa and Sunderland.

The Cottagers don't have a first option to sign the striker, who arrived at Craven Cottage in January on deadline day from Stuttgart, on a permanent basis, and according to Goal.com, they are keen to lure the player into staying.

Pogrebnyak will be a free agent in the summer as his contract with the German outfit will also run out, and it is understood it was his decision not to allow Martin Jol's side to secure first option to buy him as he wanted to learn the club's ambition before he committed for the long-term.

A source close to the situation told Goal.com: “Fulham wanted to have the option to buy but the player didn't want it. He believed he could do well and the question is whether he sees enough ambition. The deal is working brilliantly for Fulham and they are trying to ensure he sees his future at the club.”
