Liverpool in contact with Fulham about Dempsey
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says his club has spoken to
Fulham about signing U.S. forward Clint Dempsey.
Rodgers says ”Clint is a player we’ve inquired about” as
”he’s a very talented player,” adding that managing director Ian
Ayre has been in contact with Fulham ”to see what the position is.
That is where we’re at.”
The Liverpool manager was speaking Wednesday while on the
Premier League club’s three-match tour of the United States and
Rodgers also ruled out a temporary move for England forward Andy
Carroll, saying ”to consider a loan period for someone the club
spent 35 million pounds on isn’t something we’re looking to do at
this moment in time.”
Rodgers adds, however, that if a permanent offer for Carroll
comes in then ”we’d look at it.”
