Berbatov poised for Monaco

Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov is due to have a medical with Monaco ahead of an expected deadline-day move to France.

The Bulgarian has been linked with a return to former club Tottenham and their north London rivals Arsenal this month, but he now looks set to leave the country for the south of France.

The 33-year-old has scored five goals in 19 appearances for Fulham this season and 19 in 51 since joining on a free transfer from Manchester United on deadline day in August 2012.

Berbatov is expected to fly to the principality and undergo a medical ahead of today's 11pm deadline.
