Could Dimitar Berbatov seal a shock return to the Premier League?
Reports in Bulgaria say former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Berbatov has left for the UK ahead of a surprise return to the Premier League.
Berbatov has been a free agent since he left Greek club PAOK last summer and has been angling for a move to England.
And Bulgarian sports news outlet Gong say Berbatov is travelling to London today with his agent Emil Danchev to hold talks with West Ham.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic passed up the opportunity to sign Scott Hogan, who will today complete his £15millon move from Brentford to Aston Villa.

And Bilic has targeted Berbatov to bolster his squad for the rest of the season.
West Ham will apparently offer the 36-year-old a six-month deal with an option to extend for another six months.
But if Berbatov does not agree terms with West Ham, Gong claim he could join Aston Villa.
Villa boss Steve Bruce is a former Manchester United player like Berbatov, who spent four seasons at Old Trafford from 2008 to 2012 before joining Fulham and Monaco.
