Loan watch: Clint Dempsey will be available for Fulham’s March 1 game vs. Chelsea

The language of Sounders FC’s news release on Clint Dempsey‘s loan wasn’t very specific, just that it lasted two months, presumably January and February. As it turns out, Dempsey will also be available for Fulham’s March 1 home game against Chelsea, according to a team spokesman.

It had previously been believed that a Feb. 22 away game at West Bromwich Albion would be Dempsey’s final game for the Cottagers. With the update, expect him to just join the U.S. men’s national team for a March 5 exhibition at the Ukraine after that (not the ideal lead-in to Seattle’s March 8 MLS opener).

Here is an game-by-game look at the loan:
