Clint Dempsey is one of the flagship players for American football. He makes his return to Fulham on loan, having spent five years at Craven Cottage from 2007-2012. The attacking midfielder’s stock has risen to such an extent that the USA international was in demand from a number of clubs, including Arsenal and Liverpool, before Tottenham secured his services for a fee in excess of £5 million.< Dempsey then returned to MLS with the Seattle Sounders, before he rejoined Fulham on loan after a dismal firstfew months in Seattle.
Dempsey’s goal scoring record is very impressive, having scored 50 Premier League goals for Fulham in less than 200 appearances, in addition to having a strike rate of around one in three for his country.
Clint looks set to earn more than 100 caps for the USA and he should still have a few years left in the top flight of English football.
