Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov says that he is "excited" to have moved to Monaco on loan for the rest of the season.

Dimitar Berbatov has said that he is "happy" and "excited" to have joined Monaco from Fulham.

The 33-year-old striker moved to the Ligue 1 outfit on loan for the rest of the season on Friday.

"I'm happy, excited and a little bit nervous to be honest," he told Monaco's official website. "I look forward to start training with my new teammates and open a new chapter in my career."

Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev added: "Dimitar will bring us all his experience and talent. His coming is of course connected to the Radamel Falcao's injury. He played in big clubs 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 others forwards."

Monaco are currently second in Ligue 1 with 48 points from 22 matches.
