But he’s off to Monaco rather than returning to Spurs
Dimitar Berbatov is set to leave Fulham on Friday, but he will be going to Ligue 1 rather than making a shock return to Tottenham.
Big-spending French club Monaco have moved for the 33-year-old as they are lacking cover for injured star Radamel Falcao, who underwent successful surgery on a knee injury last week.
Manager Rene Meulensteen will overhaul his squad on deadline day in a bold attempt to stave off relegation.

A loan deal for Tottenham’s Lewis Holtby is being discussed, a joint bid has been placed for Larnell Cole and Ryan Tunnicliffe of Manchester United, talks are ongoing with Sporting Lisbon over a loan for Argentina defender Marcos Rojo while they may yet make a fresh bid for West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison.
Olympiakos striker Kostas Mitroglou was having a medical ahead of completing his £12.4m move on Thursday night while Denmark midfielder William Kvist joined on loan from Stuttgart and they had another bid for Phil Bardsley at Sunderland rejected.
Fulham will also listen to offers for striker Hugo Rodallega but a move for the 28-year-old Colombian will depend on any exit for Berbatov.

Meanwhile, Adel Taarabt signed for AC Milan on loan on Thursday. The Moroccan midfielder, 24, will join until the end of the season with a view to making his move permanent in the summer.
Taarabt said: ‘I am honoured to be able to play at the best club in the world. I have spoken with Clarence Seedorf and we are both happy. I am an attacker and I like to play behind the strikers.
‘I do not know Mario Balotelli personally, but I know who he is and I am pleased to be able to play with him.’
