Dimitar Berbatov has pledged to stay and help Fulham fight relegation after holding meetings with new boss Rene Meulensteen.

Berbatov, 32, has been linked with a move to Arsenal, while former club Spurs are also rumoured to be keen on re-signing him – nearly six years after selling him to Manchester United for £30million.

However, after stating before Christmas that his client was not happy, agent Emil Dantchev says talks with Meulensteen, who was appointed last month, have convinced the striker to make a U-turn.

“At the moment there is nothing to discuss,” he said. “I have seen the rumours linking Dimitar with other clubs but the fact is he has a contract and he wants to do his job for the team. He is very happy at Fulham for the moment and has spoken to the new manager. Now he wants to help them stay in the top league.”

Spurs supremo Daniel Levy failed to sign Berbatov in August 2012 when he chose to join Fulham instead. He spent two years at White Hart Lane, scoring 46 goals in 102 appearances.

But with his contract set to expire in the summer, Dantchev refused to comment on whether Berbatov would extend his stay at Craven Cottage.

He said: “We will see what happens over the next few months before making a decision on his future.”
