Fulham FC confirms Clint Dempsey has undergone physical, close to joining on loan

Reports have persisted for a while linking Sounders FC’s Clint Dempsey to a two-month loan with Fulham FC, his former team in the English Premier League.

Fulham, in fact, confirmed Friday that Dempsey has undergone a physical with the team and the terms of a prospective loan are for January and February.

Here is coach René Meulensteen on the team website:

“He’s having a medical and we’re looking into that. It would be a real boost for us. Hopefully that will all work out.

“Clint spent so many years playing in the Premier League and we all know where his strengths are. He can come in from the left or play as a second striker depending on who you’re playing against. It speaks volumes for him that he wants to come back here. Initially it’s for January and February.”

Seems like the next step is a formal announcement.
