Fulham ready to sell Liverpool and Sunderland transfer target Clint Demspey
The future of Fulham forward Clint Demspey remains unresolved heading into the final 24 hours of the transfer window.
The American has been consistently linked with a switch to Liverpool, whilst Sunderland have emerged as genuine contenders for his services in recent days.
Yet for all the speculation, Fulham have still not received an offer for the 29-year-old.
"With Dempsey there is still nothing on the table," Fulham manager Martin Jol said today.
Although there is no offer, Liverpool and Sunderland are understood to be pursuing their interest, while a move abroad for Demspey cannot be ruled out.
The American has a year remaining on his contract and has made clear he wishes to switch to a new club. At first Dempsey was seeking Champions League football, but after ostracising himself from the team during pre-season and having been left out of Fulham's first three games of the new campaign, it would seem a move anywhere will now do.
Martin Jol added today: "Of course we are talking to different clubs but it is up to him - you know his desire to go to a Champions League club.
"It is always difficult in football, there are different clubs with different scenarios and different options."
Having sold Moussa Dembele to Tottenham for £15m Fulham are under no pressure to sell Dempsey, but the west London club would appear ready to let their top scorer from last season depart.
"We know exactly what we want and if other clubs come up with the right deal we will probably do it."
