Sounders and Fulham complete loan for Dempsey
U.S. national team captain Clint Dempsey will be returning to
Fulham on a two-month loan from the Seattle Sounders.
Dempsey passed a medical test with the Cottagers last week, and
the loan was completed Tuesday. No dates were announced for when
Dempsey would join Fulham or return to Seattle. But the expectation
is he would come back before the Sounders opener in March against
defending MLS champion Sporting Kansas City.
Dempsey scored 60 goals in 225 games for Fulham from 2007-12,
including 50 goals in 184 Premier League matches. He spent a season
at Tottenham before moving to Major League Soccer in August and
joining the Sounders. Dempsey appeared in 12 games for Seattle and
finished with a disappointing one goal and one assist in his first
season back in MLS.
