United States international Clint Dempsey could be on his way to Fulham on a season-long loan deal.

The 30-year old Tottenham Hotspur midfielder was signed from Fulham last summer and has been linked with a loan move back to his former club.

Dempsey made 29 Premier League appearances during the 2012/13 campaign, but failed to impress in his debut season with Spurs. Fellow London side Fulham are said to be keen on convincing him to return to the club in an attempt to re-find his form.

During his five-years with Fulham, Dempsey scored 60 goals in 223 games. Last season saw him linked with a number of sides, but Tottenham won the race for his signature. 12 months later and the same side now want to cash in on him, as he isn’t expected to get much playing time next season.

Fulham manager Martin Jol is yet to formerly approach Tottenham for Dempsey’s services, but the 57-year old is very keen on renewing acquaintances with the midfielder.

Both parties are expected to undergo talks in the coming weeks of pre-season to work out a deal that will suit everybody.

Fulham fans will be delighted to hear of the potential return of Dempsey for the 2013/14 season.
