Dimitar Berbatov Wants To Leave Fulham, Says Agent

Dimitar Berbatov wants to leave Fulham in January, according to his agent Emil Dantchev.

The 32-year-old Bulgarian striker is one of the club's marquee players but has scored just once in the Barclays Premier League this season as Fulham have slipped down to 18th in the table.

René Meulensteen replaced the sacked Martin Jol this week but he has suffered and early blow by news Berbatov, whose contract expires in the summer, is looking for a way out next month.

Berbatov is "not happy", according to his agent

"I don't usually speculate as nobody knows what will happen in January but what I can tell you is he (Berbatov) is not happy at Fulham," Dantchev told Press Association Sport.

"He would like, if possible, to find another option."

Despite a poor campaign by his own standards, Berbatov has the star power to attract interest from clubs throughout Europe, but Dantchev suggested the his client would prefer to remain in the Premier League.

"I cannot comment (on whether there has been any approach) but the priority is to find a solution to stay in England," he said.

Fulham, who take on Tottenham on Wednesday night in Meulensteen's first match in charge, refused to comment on the situation.
