Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov is due to have a medical with Monaco on Friday afternoon ahead of a potential move to the Ligue 1 side.

Berbatov had been linked with a return to Tottenham, but Press Association Sport understands the striker has been given permission to speak to Monaco instead.

The 33-year-old is expected to fly to the principality and undergo a medical.

Both parties hope a deal can be concluded before the 11pm transfer deadline.
