Dempsey saga continues with Fulham filing complaint

Clint Dempsey's future with Fulham remains in limbo while the club has launched an official complaint to the Premier League over Liverpool's conduct in its pursuit of American attacker. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers went public with his interest in Dempsey last month, but there has been no firm bid from Liverpool since then, leaving Fulham coach Martin Jol furious. Jol left Dempsey out of the squad for last weekend's season opener and again for this Saturday's game at Manchester United.

"The Premier League has received a complaint from Fulham regarding certain comments made by Liverpool officials and is currently looking into the matter," an EPL statement read.

"Mentally Clint wants to move, he doesn't want to stay here," Jol said. "His head was turned and that was the problem. It's a problem and a situation you don't want. It's not something you can talk to a player about every day because he doesn't want to.

"I don't know if he'll remain a Fulham player. I'd love to keep him, but I'm not sure. Hopefully if he stays, then in the next couple of weeks he will change his thoughts about us. With me there's no problem and I don't think there's a problem within the team over him."
