Berbatov eager to extend Monaco stay

Monaco striker Dimitar Berbatov is eager to extend his stay with the Ligue 1 club beyond the end of the season.

13/8 Fulham are 13/8 with William Hill to avoid relegation
Berbatov joined the French title-chasers on loan from Premier League strugglers Fulham at the end of January and has since scored six goals in 12 appearances.

The Bulgarian netted the winner in Monaco's 1-0 victory over Nice on Sunday, hitting the target with an audacious lob, and the 33-year-old is keen to remain with the principality club, whose victory over Cote d'Azur rivals Nice secured a place in next season's Champions League.

"My future? Everything is fine for me here, I play and score," Berbatov told L'Equipe.

"When the season is over, we will sit around a table and we will decide if I stay or leave.

"I am doing my job on the pitch so far and I try to prove I am quite good. Do I want to stay at Monaco? Yes, I would like to stay."
