No bids - none welcome - Fulham
Fulham have revealed they have not received any offers for Clint Dempsey - and discouraged Liverpool or any other club from making one.
Speculation has been rife this summer that the 29-year-old is set to link up with the Reds, which was fuelled on Wednesday after a report on the club owner's official website suggested a deal was complete. An article linked to the Fenway Sports Group (FSG) homepage, www.fenwaysportsgroup.com, said that Liverpool had "added Clint Dempsey to a team that came within a game of winning the FA Cup". Any mention of Dempsey, who has a year left on his contract, was later removed from the article hosted on FSG-owned website www.NESN.com. Fulham said the report was unfounded and issued a warning to any interested clubs. "We have received no offers from any club for Clint Dempsey," a club spokesman said. "We would discourage any club from making a bid for him."
