Dempsey not for sale - Hughes

10 December 2010 06:30

Fulham manager Mark Hughes is adamant top scorer Clint Dempsey will not be leaving the club in the January transfer window.

Dempsey has been linked with a £10million move to Liverpool, where he would be reunited with former Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson. Wolfsburg manager Steve McClaren is also reported to be interested in the United States international.

"I'm sure there is interest in Clint. Most good players are mentioned at some point in time leading into a window," said the Fulham boss. "There's been no contact from any clubs for Clint or any other player."

He added: "Nor would we encourage it because Clint's very happy here, is enjoying his football and is having an impact for us.

"If there any enquires about Clint, they'll be getting short shrift."
