Mark Hughes has told Sky Sports News that Spurs have accepted Manchester City’s shock bid for Dimitar Berbatov.

Hughes revealed that a fee had been agreed with Tottenham and he now plans to hold talks with the player himself. The fee is expected to be a new British record, in excess of £30million.

Hughes said…

‘I’m as stunned and excited by this as the fans are.’

Dimitar Berbatov left Stansted airport earlier this afternoon bound for Manchester, whereby he will discuss personal terms and have a medical.

An official announcement is expected this evening.
