Veteran Bulgaria forward had been linked with a move to Russia.
Dimitar Berbatov’s agent has confirmed that the front man will now be staying at Fulham this summer after all, reports the London Evening Standard.
The mercurial Bulgaria international has only been at Craven Cottage for one season now, having originally signed for the west London club from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee last August.
And the 32-year-old enjoyed a fine debut campaign in the capital for Martin Jol’s side, finding the back of the net on 15 occasions in his 35 appearances in all competitions for the struggling outfit, goals that ultimately helped keep the club in the Premier League come the end of the season.
However, rumours had been rife that the striker could be set for a big-money move to Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg when the summer transfer window reopens for business on July 1, although those stories have now been debunked by the player’s agent.
“He has another one-year contract with Fulham and he will stay at Fulham until the end of his contract,” said Emil Danchev.
“He’s happy at Fulham and he wants to stay another year. I don’t want to comment on other clubs. Even if there is interest, he’s happy in Fulham and he wants to stay. He will play football for at least two more years.”
