Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has ruled out playing for another Premier League side when he leaves Old Trafford this summer, according to the player's agent.

The Bulgarian has made just 12 appearances in the Premier League this season and is likely to depart with just a year remaining on his current deal.

However, instead of staying in the Premier League, where he's played for the last six years, Berbatov is looking to move to pastures new according to his agent Emil Dantchev.

Berbatov is likely to leave the Premier League.

"Dimitar does not want to play for another club in England," Dantchev told

"He would like to try a new challenge in another league. It has been a frustrating season and now he just wants to play football."

Reports had suggested United were looking to offload Berbatov back to Tottenham Hotspur, where the 31-year-old played for two years before moving to the 12-time Premier League champions, as part of a deal to bring Luka Modric to the club.

Berbatov could now move to Germany, with former club Bayer Leverkusen a possible destination.

He moved from Spurs to United for £30 million in 2008 scoring 48 goals in 108 starts for the club during which time he claimed two Premier League titles and the Champions League.

However in recent seasons, despite finishing as the Premier League's joint top goal scorer last season, his opportunities have been limited due to the signing of Javier Hernandez, the emergence of Danny Welbeck and the consistency of Wayne Rooney.

Berbatov penned a new deal with United in March but now appears ready to cut short that agreement, with the likes of Will Keane and Federico Macheda waiting in the wings.

"Berba is a top, top player who has years left at the highest level," Ferguson last month. "We won't be letting him go for nothing."

Question marks also remain over the future of Michael Owen, who hasn't made a United appearance in 2012, with a groin injury keeping him out of action.
