French fancy: Dimitar Berbatov has swapped relegation-threatened Fulham for Ligue 1 title challengers MonacoFormer Manchester United forward, Dimitar Berbatov has joined French side Monaco on loan from Fulham until the end of the season.

Berbatov opted to join the Ligue 1 side rather than rejoin former club, Tottenham as big-spending Monaco moved for the thirty three year old, seeing they lacked cover for injured star Radamel Falcao, who underwent successful surgery on a knee injury last week.

'I'm happy, excited and a little bit nervous to be honest,' Berbatov told Monaco's official website,
'I look forward to starting training with my new team-mates and open a new chapter in my career.'

No return: Dimitar Berbatov has left Fulham but decided to join Monaco rather than return to Spurs
Berbatov will wear the number 15 at Stade Louis II, where he will stay until the end of the season, when his contract with the Cottagers expires.

Speaking about the addition of Berbatov, Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev said: 'Dimitar will bring us all his experience and talent.

'His coming is of course connected to Radamel Falcao's injury. He played in big clubs such as Manchester United and he's a big striker.

'We still have two competitions to play and he will be an asset with Emmanuel Riviere, Valere Germain and Anthony Martial. He has a different profile than our other forwards.'
