Newcastle United are looking for a striker and Dimitar Berbatov wants move back to England.

Dimitar Berbatov has refused to rule out a move to Newcastle United, as per his comments to the Times.

Berbatov is currently a free agent, and he is eager to move back to England - where he had the most success in career.

The Bulgarian international is renowned as one of the most skilful strikers to have played in the Premier League.

Berbatov represented both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in his younger years, and he was a prolific scorer.

The 35-year-old has now been without a club for over six months, after leaving PAOK in Greece last summer.

And Berbatov is eager to get back playing again, with a move back to England on his wishlist.

Berbatov would ideally like to play at Premier League level, but when asked whether he would move to Newcastle, the striker responded by saying: “Everything is possible. Just to smell the grass one more time, especially in England.”

Berbatov also admitted that he used to sleep in a Newcastle shirt, as Alan Shearer was his favourite player.

“Alan Shearer was a hero, still he is a hero of mine, the way he scored the goals and put his hands out, that’s what I used to do when I scored as a tribute to him, just trying to imitate your childhood hero,” he added.

Newcastle are believed to be on the look out for a new striker in January, but it is not known whether Berbatov is a player on Rafael Benitez’s wishlist.
