Dimitar Berbatov PAOK

Former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov is hoping he can attract interest from the Premier League.

The 35-year-old watched his former club Spurs slump to a 1-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen, and discussed his future with BBC Radio 5Live before the match.

Berbatov is a free agent, having been released by Greek side PAOK in the summer.

However, he believes he can still be a valuable asset for a club in the English top-flight.

“When you’ve played in the Premier League you don’t want to play anywhere else,” he said.

“In this stage of my career I know where I am – I would happily play for a team where they use my experience and my knowledge.

“I can help young players develop and make the team stronger. In the end it’s all about helping the team play.”

The Bulgaria international, who retired from playing for his country in September 2012, last featured for an English club in 2014.

After spells with Tottenham (2006-2008) and Manchester United (2008-2012) he moved to Fulham, where he played for two years. His final season with the Cottagers culminated with their relegation to the Championship.
