TUKWILA, Wash. — U.S. national team captain Clint Dempsey will be returning to Fulham on a two-month loan from the Seattle Sounders.
Dempsey passed a medical test with the Cottagers last week, and the loan was completed Tuesday. No dates were announced for when Dempsey would join Fulham or return to Seattle. But the expectation is he would come back before the Sounders opener in March against defending MLS champion Sporting Kansas City.
Dempsey scored 60 goals in 225 games for Fulham from 2007-12, including 50 goals in 184 Premier League matches. He spent a season at Tottenham before moving to Major League Soccer in August and joining the Sounders. Dempsey appeared in 12 games for Seattle and finished with a disappointing one goal and one assist in his first season back in MLS.MORE IN Wire SportsPITTSBURGH — Matt Calvert banged home a rebound 1:10 into the second overtime and the Columbus...
