Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov has signed a one-year extension of his contract with French Ligue 1 club AS Monaco.

Berbatov joined the French football club from Fulham in January under a contract expiring at the end of the season.

However, his excellent performance from the past few months convinced the management of the football club that he had to get a contract extension.

"With AS Monaco, Dimitar showed all of his talent. He is a great player and we are very proud to have him for the next season," the club's Vice President Vadim Vasilyev said in a statement.

"I feel at home here. It's gonna be an interesting season!" Berbatov said after signing the new contract, according to reports of The Daily Mail.
