By Emma Sanders

Dimitar Berbatov’s agent claims the striker wants to make a return to the Premier League.

Berbatov’s agent Emil Dantchev has revealed that the former Tottenham and Manchester United striker hopes to end his career with one last bow in the English top flight.

The former Spurs favourite was released in the summer after his contract with Greek club PAOK Salonika ended in June but he is keen to return to England, where he was very successful.

“Dimitar feels he can play for at least another year and his priority would be to come back to England,” Dantchev told the BBC Sport website.

Berbatov made a name for himself in England when he scored 46 goals in 102 total appearances for Tottenham before making a move to Manchester United when he was in his prime.

The Bulgarian won two Premier League titles under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2009 and 2011 and he won the Golden Boot alongside Carlos Teven during a hugely successful career in Manchester.

He won the League Cup during his two-year tenure at White Hart Lane and scored in the final defeat against Chelsea in 2008 after winning over hearts of Tottenham fans.

The striker was a highly-skillful player and his intricate touches and incredible goal-scoring ability made him a fan-favourite in London.

As well as Tottenham and Manchester United, Berbatov also enjoyed a spell at Fulham before he moved to Monaco in January 2014 and he has yet to return to England.
