Berbatov to remain at Fulham

By Football News



Dimitar Berbatov's agent Emil Danchev has confirmed that the striker will remain with Fulham next season.

The 32-year-old still has a year left on his contract, but has been linked with a move to Russia, after Zenit St Petersburg confirmed their interest. 

However, Danchev, Berbatov's representative, insists the former Manchester United and Tottenham star will honour the deal he has at Craven Cottage. 

"He has another one-year contract with Fulham and he will stay at Fulham until the end of his contract," he said. 

"He's happy at Fulham and he wants to stay another year. I don't want to comment on other clubs. Even if there is interest, he's happy in Fulham and he wants to stay. He will play football for at least two more years." 

Danchev praised the Russian Premier League in a prior interview, as he told Izvestia: "The Russian League is growing seriously and should soon become one of the leading championships in Europe so to play in that country would be interesting."

Berbatov scored 15 Premier League goals in his first season at Fulham last term after joining from Manchester United.
