Fulham have today denied that Clint Dempsey has joined Liverpool.

The American midfielder has been consistently linked with a switch to Anfield, and a report earlier today on a website hosting the official homepage of Fenway Sports Group, the owners of Liverpool, suggested a deal had been done.

The sentence: "[Liverpool have] added Clint Dempsey to a team that came within a game of winning the FA Cup," appeared on nesn.com.

The sentence in the article was later removed, but not before the article was picked up and the United States international began to trend on Twitter.

Both Fulham and Dempsey's agent have since clarified that the player has not been sold.

"We have received no offers from any club for Clint Dempsey," a club spokesman said. "We would discourage any club from making a bid for him."

Yet despite today's denial, with one-year left to run on Dempsey's contract at Craven Cottage, speculation will continue to surround his future.

After scoring 17 goals in the Premier League last term, it's thought the 29-year-old could command as much as £10m.
