Fulham boss Martin Jol has confirmed a deal is now close for Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov.

Berbatov was undergoing a medical at Fulham last night.

"Berbatov is finishing his medical and if everything is good he will be one of our players," said Jol. "There were a lot of clubs interested in him but we were able and capable of getting him.

"He was on my list all the time. I tried to do something months ago and it didn't come off so I came back and it was the right moment for him to make his decision."
