[AMERICANS ABROAD]Attacker Clint Dempsey, who joined EPL club Fulham in January of 2006, has signed a two-year contract extension with Fulham through 2010. The 25-year-old started 28 league games, made seven appearances off the bench this season and leads the team with six goals. Fulham climbed out of the relegation zone last weekend and can ensure survival with a win over Portsmouth on Sunday.
Dempsey is one of five Americans in the Fulham squad. The others are goalkeeper Kasey Keller, defender Carlos Bocanegra and forwards Brian McBride and Eddie Johnson.
