Surprise return on cards for former Fulham favourite

Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders)

Fulham are interested in signing Clint Dempsey on loan, according to the Daily Star.

The American left the Premier League for Seattle Sounders in the summer, but will have a 3 month break between December and March during the MLS off-season.

And former club Fulham, where Dempsey spent 6 seasons, want to bring the striker back to Craven Cottage on a loan deal. Similar moves have happened with MLS players in the past, with Robbie Keane, David Beckham and Thierry Henry all spending the off-season on loan at European clubs in the past.

Dempsey scored 50 league goals for the Whites during his time in England, before joining Tottenham on the 2012 summer transfer deadline day. The American looked set to move to Liverpool, only for Spurs to have a higher bid accepted by Fulham.

But with Martin Jol’s side struggling to win games in the Premier League, after losing their 6th game of the season already, 3-1 at home to Manchester United, the London club could look to bring the USA international back to the Cottage to try and boost their side.

The two time Fulham player of the season turned 30 earlier this year, and could join an already experienced Fulham squad that are struggling to earn points in the league this season. But the return of a fans favourite could boost the team, and supporters’ moods.
