Fulham Re-Sign Clint Dempsey On Two-Month Loan Deal

The experienced United States international will play for the relegation threatened west London club during the MLS off season, before the 30-year-old then returns back across the Pond in early March.

Dempsey first arrived at Craven Cottage in the January transfer window of 2007, with the player signing from MLS team the New England Revolution for a transfer fee of just $4 million.

And in his five-and-a-half seasons in the capital, Dempsey went on to prove himself to be a huge favourite with the west Londoners’ fans, twice being voted the club’s Player of the Year, before the attacker then controversially opted to leave Fulham and join arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur in August 2012 for £6m.

However, the American did manage to find the back of the net on 60 occasions in total in his 225 matches for Fulham in all competitions during his time with the club, including an equally impressive 50 strikes in 184 Premier League outings.

And now new Fulham head coach Rene Meulensteen has decided to re-sign the player, with Dempsey saying in an interview aired on the club’s official website: “It feels good to be back.

“This has always felt like my home in Europe.

“I am excited to be back and be a part of this team and play in this league.”I just wanted to be back playing at the highest level, get back to top form and get back to helping the team where they are not where they want to be in the table.

“Going into World Cup year you want to get to that top form and carry that forward, so hopefully have a good showing.”
