Fulham manager Martin Jol has refused to comment on speculation that Clint Dempsey could return to the club on loan this January, according to talkSPORT.

The American midfielder enjoyed a highly successful six seasons at Craven Cottage between 2006 and 2012, scoring 60 goals in 225 appearances for the club and becoming widely regarded as their best player, and one of the best goal-scoring midfielders in the Premier League.

His best season was undoubtedly his final season with the club, when he scored 23 goals in 46 games for Jol’s side.

Dempsey then made the move to Tottenham last summer, only to leave the club just one year later after failing to continue his best form at White Hart Lane.

Now of MLS side Seattle Sounders, Dempsey could be the latest in a long line of players from the US to make a temporary switch to England during the three-month close-season, in a bid to maintain fitness and play competitive football.

The 30-year-old could be a welcome addition to Jol’s side at the moment, as they continue to struggle after a difficult start to the season.

However, Jol has refused to give anything away, saying he does not talk about players who aren’t already part of his team.

“It’s unbelievable speculation, which is nice. I never talk about players, especially when they are not here,” the Dutchman said.
