Berba set to snub Spurs for Monaco
Dimitar Berbatov's proposed return to Tottenham has fallen through with the Fulham striker set to join Monaco.
The 33-year-old Bulgarian is expected to undergo a medical with the Ligue 1 side this afternoon, with German midfielder Lewis Holtby joining Fulham on loan from Tottenham for the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, the long-anticipated loan deal for Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha to Cardiff has finally gone through.
The 21-year-old has joined the Bluebirds for the rest of the season and should get a chance to prove his Premier League quality after a frustrating six months at United.
Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "He has pace, power, technical ability and goes past people. He will bring that little final bit to find pockets of space and produce a bit of magic."
Sunderland have signed Scotland midfielder Liam Bridcutt from Brighton on a three-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee, while Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo has moved closer to joining Juventus as he underwent a medical with the Italian league leaders.
The 28-year-old Italy international arrived in a club-record deal from Roma last summer but has failed to live up to the billing and was recently involved in a training-ground bust-up.
Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier has confirmed he intends to stay with the French club following interest from Newcastle.
"I don't intend to leave. It's not a priority, even if the offers from big clubs make you think," Grenier said on Lyon's website.
