MONACO HAVE ANNOUNCED that Dimitar Berbatov has left the club and the striker now could be on his way to Bournemouth.

The Bulgarian forward moved to Stade Louis II from Fulham in January 2014 and he scored 13 goals in 38 Ligue 1 appearances.

Berbatov, though, will not be extending his stay, with Monaco releasing a statement on Monday praising his “character, his professionalism and his great talent”.

The former Tottenham and Manchester United star has been linked with a return to the Premier League with newly promoted Bournemouth.

Several outlets in England are reporting Eddie Howe will try and bolster his squad with experience by bringing the Bulgarian striker to the Goldsands Stadium.

Monaco president Vadim Vasilyev added: “He is clearly among the greatest strikers who have played for Monaco. We are proud of what he brought to the club and wish him the best in the future.”

Monaco also confirmed that Maarten Stekelenburg will return to Fulham following the end of his loan deal.
