Premier League - Berbatov 'to shun Tottenham return for Monaco'

Monaco will make a late, surprise move for Dimitar Berbatov, according to reports.

Berbatov's agent, Emil Danchev, had made it clear earlier in the window that his client was unhappy at Fulham and was seeking a move, with reports indicating that the Bulgarian was set for a return to former club Tottenham.

However, reports early on Friday indicate that Monaco have had a bid accepted by Fulham with the former Manchester United player seen as short term cover up front following Falcao's cruciate ligament injury, which has seen the Colombian out for the rest of the season.
