Dimitar Berbatov: Fulham striker joins Monaco on loan for the remainder of the season
Bulgarian striker is out of contract at Craven Cottage at the end of the season
Dimitar Berbatov has left Fulham to join French side Monaco on loan until the end of the season.
The 33-year-old is out of contract with Fulham in the summer, so looks to have made his final appearance at Craven Cottage.
Monaco are currently second in Ligue 1, six points below Paris St-Germain.
The Bulgarian striker told Monaco's official website: "I'm happy, excited and a little bit nervous to be honest."
"I look forward to starting training with my new team-mates and open a new chapter in my career."
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.
The forward had been linked with a return to former club Tottenham, but will instead join up with a Monaco side second in Ligue 1 and without Colombia star Radamel Falcao for the rest of the campaign due to injury.
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."
