Clint Dempsey Pulls Out Of Fulham Tour, Wants to Force Move to Liverpool, Says Report

Clint Dempsey has pulled out of Fulham’s preseason tour to Switzerland in an attempt to force a transfer to Liverpool, says Goal.com.

The versatile American who can play as a striker or attacking midfielder is said to have gotten into heated debate at the training ground with Fulham manager Martin Jol. According to the report, Jol accepted Dempsey’s demand to not join the tour, and the American has been left behind to train with the Fulham youngsters instead.

While there are reports that Andy Carroll is joining West Ham United on a loan deal, and Alberto Aquilani may join Fiorentina, it leaves Liverpool with the opportunity to sign Clint Dempsey and Joe Allen.

At 29, Dempsey’s best chance to move to a bigger club is during this summer transfer window. He’s not getting any younger and he’s currently at the top of his game. His value is as high as it’ll probably ever be.
