Bulgarian striker set to remain at Craven Cottage.
The agent of Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov has brought relief to the club’s fans after claiming that his client intends to see out the remaining year on his contract according to The London Evening Standard.
Berbatov was in fine form for Fulham last season after joining the club from Manchester United last summer.
He was often the focal point of the Cottagers’ attack and his performances have not gone unnoticed with a number of European sides thought to be monitoring his availability.
Wealthy Russian side Zenit St Petersburg were thought to be preparing a bid for the player and were ready to tempt him with a mega-bucks contract.
But it now seems that Berbatov is ready to spurn their advances and commit his short-term future to the club.
Berbatov’s agent Emil Danchev has gone on record claiming that Berbatov will remain a Fulham player next season.
The news will come as a relief to Fulham boss Martin Jol, who is desperate to avoid a repeat of last summer, which saw the club lose both Moussa Dembele and Clint Dempsey to Tottenham.
Danchev refused to be drawn on what would happen next summer though, with some having suggested that Berbatov may seek to move to a club closer to his home country.
