Tottenham chief Daniel Levy is keen on a shock reunion with Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov - but Tim Sherwood is against the move.

Levy is keen to ensure the north Londoners are not left short of striking options when Jermain Defoe leaves for Toronto at the end of February.

As such the Spurs supremo - who failed with a Deadline Day bid to pinch Berbatov ahead of Fulham two years ago - is looking at a short-term deal worth £1.5million.

As reported by MirrorFootball last month, the Bulgarian, on £80,000-a-week at Craven Cottage, has indicated to Fulham that he wants to quit the club's relegation fight this month.

Sherwood, however, maintains he has enough attacking options at his disposal and does not want Emmanuel Adebayor - who has returned to form under his leadership - unsettled.

Sherwood said: "Everyone knows Berba. He is proven in this division.

"He is a Fulham player and I am not sure what they are thinking about that. But we have options to take us through to the end of the season."
