Hands off Dempsey, warn Fulham



Clint Dempsey has been with Fulham since 2007

Clint Dempsey has been with Fulham since 2007

Fulham have revealed they have not received any offers for Clint Dempsey - and discouraged Liverpool or any other interested club from making a move for the United States international.

Speculation has been rife this summer that the 29-year-old is set to link up with the Reds, which was fuelled after a report on the club owner's official website suggested a deal was complete.

Fulham said the report was unfounded and issued a warning to any interested clubs. A club spokesman said: "We have received no offers from any club for Clint Dempsey. We would discourage any club from making a bid for him."

An article linked to the Fenway Sports Group (FSG) homepage, www.fenwaysportsgroup.com, said that Liverpool had "added Clint Dempsey to a team that came within a game of winning the FA Cup".

Any mention of Dempsey, who has a year left on his contract, was later removed from the article hosted on FSG-owned website www.NESN.com.

It is understood the two clubs had a conversation about a possible move for Dempsey earlier in the summer but that has not been followed up by any official approach, contrary to reports.

Dempsey has been with the west London side since 2007 after joining from Major League Soccer's New England Revolution.

The Texan has established himself as one of Fulham's key players and last term won player of the season, as well as finishing fourth on the Football Writers' Association's Footballer of the Year list.

Liverpool needed to make what ever transfers there going to make soon to try them out at one of the pre-season games. I think Liverpool sould try to get a strong, fast right mid like Theo Walcott or David Silva, they can link up with Suarze and can go it alone

Dempsey is a great player, and always gives one hundred percent on the field. Maybe we will offer Andy Carroll, as a part exchange ? Brendan Rodgers says Carroll, is not part of his immediate future.

I WILL FORECAST THE FOLLOWING :EITHER MY CLUB LIVERPOOL, OR CHELSEA WILL END UP WITH HARRY REDNAPP AS THEIR MANAGER. I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS FORECAST BECAUSE JAMIE REDNAPP, WAS A GREAT PLAYER FOR US, AND HIS DAD HARRY CAN MOTIVATE PLAYERS. HARRY IS A GREEDY BASTARD, BUT SO ARE MOST OF US.
