Dempsey reveals Champions League desire

Published Add your comment

Clint Dempsey maintains he wants to play in the Champions League, which casts further doubt over his future at Fulham.

The 29-year-old American netted 23 goals in all competitions last season to help Martin Jol's men finish ninth in the Barclays Premier League. Dempsey - signed from New England Revolution in January 2007, has been offered improved terms by the Cottagers.

However, in an interview with Sports Illustrated, Dempsey reiterated his desire to test himself against the game's best. "I am grateful for everything Fulham have done for me, some of the best memories I have in soccer have been there, but the fact remains that I want to play in Champions League. I want to play at the highest level possible," he said.
