Cape Town - Veteran striker Dimitar Berbatov has voiced his interest in playing for a Premier League team again, following brief spells in France and Greece.

The former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur frontman is currently a free agent after parting ways with PAOK Salonika in June.

Now the 35-year-old is on the hunt for a chance to ply his trade at a Premier League club once again.

"When you've played in the Premier League you don't want to play anywhere else," the Bulgarian told BBC 5 live Sport.

"In this stage of my career I know where I am - I would happily play for a team where they use my experience and my knowledge.

"I can help young players develop and make the team stronger. In the end it's all about helping the team play."

Berbatov scored 94 goals during his time in the Premier League, and produced 42 assists.
