Clint Dempsey To Villa? Reports Just In!

This is a new one on me?!

Neil Moxley ‏@Neil_Moxley_DM
Looks like Dempsey is a 'yes' for Villa, despite five, yes five, non-denials from PL. We wait...



Timothy Abraham ‏@TimothyAbraham
Paul Lambert sidestepped questions about Clint Dempsey. Said there was no interest initially but when pressed later was a bit more coy.



Pete Colley ‏@petecolley
Paul Lambert denies any interest in Clinton Dempsey...........Not so sure I believe him mind......



James Nursey ‏@JamesNursey
Lambert initially denied interest in Dempsey & then admitted it was possible. But with Carroll, Adam & Spearing leaving #LFC surely them 1st



Wiki on Clint: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clint_Dempsey


Clinton Drew 'Clint' Dempsey (born March 9, 1983) is an American soccer player who plays for Fulham and the United States national team.

Growing up in Nacogdoches, Texas, Dempsey played for one of the top youth soccer clubs in the state, the Dallas Texans, before playing for Furman University's men's soccer team. In 2004, Dempsey was drafted by Major League Soccer club New England Revolution, where he quickly integrated himself into the starting lineup. Hindered initially by a jaw injury, he would eventually score 25 goals in 71 appearances with the Revolution. Since 2007, Dempsey has played for Premier League team Fulham and has earned the club record for goals scored in Premier League matches.

Wiki says 50 goals in 187 games for Fulham.

I just posted this on another post: BREAKING NEWS - Aston Villa have had a 7m bid accepted for Clint Dempsey - another twist in the Dempsey saga. Eurosport confirmed.
Lee282
get him signed, just what we need!
AHAVFC
Daily Mail saying 7m Villa bid accepted, Liverpool also interested.
The Fear
We will get him, but even if we don't, at least it shows some intent. Way to go PL!
Lee282
My word- and the Bentek deal continuing as well. This would be a coup. Liverpool still the favourites though.
Villa_Grizzly
PL is a genius. Exactly the type of exerience and quality that we need. Would be good to get one over on the Scousers and would send out the right message to other teams and our fans...
Villan444
Now this is really good busines if it goes through !!!!!!
jfr7730
Would be just what we need given the lack of quality in the squad. Can't see Dempsey being overly happy about a move here. I will only believe this if/when it is announced on the official website.
Ricardomeister
The way Liverpool have behaved I would laugh if Fulham turn around to Dempsey and say its villa or nowhere!!
Ams78
Someone should tell Guzan to get on the blower quick sharp!
Lee282
Absolutely Lee282, couldn't agree more.
Pride of Lions
Is it possible that PL is telling the truth - that this isn't his transfer!? The American link is a bit too obvious perhaps, but has RL stepped in Abramovich-esque to sign an available premiership midfielder? I suspect not...but thought I'd throw it out there. Other moves (e.g. Charlie Adam) could still affect this deal, and does Dempsey really want to come (rumours of falling out with Jol?). On a more positive note, O'Neill is after Jenas!!
Football is Life
Hell yeah!!!!!! Please let this come off!!!!
nottinghamvillain
Quality player and would be an excellent signing, sadly think we will end up at Liverpool though
We're Not Fickle
This would be amazing. Twitter are in dismay that he'd go to Villa...little do they know that we'll be playing Lambert's Dortmund silky smooth footy very soon. *****s me off how reactionary people are after 2 matches. Morons.
olofthegreat
GET THIS DONE NOW!!!!!!!
Madirish
He wants to go to Liverpool. Game over.
Stephen Jay Hawkings
Charlie Adam wanted to go to Liverpool too and today he's in Stoke. Dempsey would be ideal for us.
Madirish
really can't get excited about this. He's average at best and IMO over priced at 7m. Suspect he'll end up at the red scouse in any event
AVbornandbred
villa have ended there interest in dempsey but we have signed jordan bowery for 200k
