Dimitar Berbatov's agent reveals that his client was in talks with Tottenham Hotspur over a potential return to White Hart Lane on deadline day.

The agent of Dimitar Berbatov has revealed that the player was in talks with former club Tottenham Hotspur over a potential return on transfer deadline day.

Berbatov's future was uncertain until he finalised a £4m move to Fulham on Friday, having turned down moves to Fiorentina and Juventus.

However, his agent, Emil Danchev, has now revealed that the 31-year-old striker's transfer saga almost took another spectacular twist with a return to Spurs, four years to the day after leaving them for Manchester United.

"We were in touch with Tottenham at the last moment," Danchev told reporters at a press conference with Berbatov held in Sofia.

Danchev also revealed the number of clubs who had expressed an interest in signing Berbatov.

"I've also spoken with three Turkish clubs, three Italian clubs, three English clubs, and three German clubs," he added.

Berbatov made his debut for Fulham during the second half of their 3-0 loss to West Ham United on Saturday.
