Word On The Tweet - Press Think NO To Dempsey

Going to be a busy day it seems!

Update following: Clint Dempsey To Villa? Reports Just In!

Timothy Abraham@‏@TimothyAbraham
From what we gather at #AVFC there has been a move for Dempsey but the smart money would be on him going to #LFC

James Nursey@‏@JamesNursey
A lot of smoke and mirrors on deadline day! #AVFC fans really should not expect Clint Dempsey to join. Sorry!

Mat Kendrick@‏@MatKendrick
Think a price has been agreed between Villa and Fulham for Clint Dempsey, but still very unlikely for deal to happen #avfc

Ian Taylor@ ‏@IanTaylor7
Its all fun and games on #deadlineday. Don't believe anything until the ink is dry on those contracts!! Even then,keep your fingers crossed!

Opta Sports@ ‏@OptaJoe
17 - Only three players scored more Premier League goals than Clint Dempsey in the 2011-12 Premier League. Deuce.

Ian Taylor@ ‏@IanTaylor7
Had a bid accepted for Clint Dempsey. Hope he comes to #avfc A lot can still happen though. #deadlineday

Pete Colley@‏@petecolley
PL trying to sell the press a dummy!! It appears Villa have a bid accepted for Dempsey..still think CD will play in Red from now on!

Timothy Abraham@TimothyAbraham
Of course. The Dempsey move could be a bit of brinkmanship from#AVFC to try to force Genk's hand on Benteke.

If Dempsey does join, does James Nursey lose his job?
simonbigron
Dempsey wants Liverpool, so we miss out again.
eltoro
Pool have cash now, would be surprised if they didnt bid aswell as he's been strongly linked all summer.
son_of_cher
Would be happy with Yossi Benny Onion if this doesn't happen. I've always rated him.
Adam Deuce
Charlie Adam wanted to go to Liverpool too and today he's in Stoke. Dempsey would be ideal for us.
Madirish
I think this one is too good to be true, as James Nursey said there's alot of smoke and mirrors on transfer deadline day. Hopefully it's legit but if not then I hope PL has an ace up his sleeve and delivers Messi as promised on the day he signed
Vlaartistic
eltero lets wait and see eh
kefkat
Hey, if Dempsey prefers Liverpoo, ***** him.
Saurat
It's all very well preferring Liverpool... But they have not actually bid!!??
Ams78
Embarrassing that this was made public. Were we being used by Fulham to get the money out of the scousers?? Did the Americans with us try to go behind PL's back?? Hopefully we were using Dempsey to get Genke to drop their price.Had us all excited but we could neither afford his wages or fulfill his ambitions by finishing midtable. If Benteke is that good, then he's worth 15 mil. If not then he's not good enough for Villa.
Villan444
I think Dempsey wants Liverpool so would prefer someone who wants to come to VP, not come as 2nd best option....another MON type signing 30ish for a big fee & no doubt big wages with no sell on value....hope it is a ploy to get Genk to play ball.
djvilla
Academic anyway, twitter says he's turned us down anyway....so lets move on...
djvilla
I think you're right Villan444, funny business it is and I think we're nothing more than a manouvre to swing the control back in Fulhams direction for a bid from Liverpool. Waiting on that ace card PL...
Vlaartistic
and there it is...***** him then http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/19435575

Neil Moxley ‏@Neil_Moxley_DM DM's chap in Liverpool, Mr Dominic King, tells me that the Reds are struggling for the cash to do Clint Dempsey....so..
The Fear
It's all over for Dempsey now. Shame, but let's look at someone similar, e.g. that Zarate guy who was linked
VillaJ
Don't want him now anyway, hope Liverpool can't afford him and he gets stuck in Fulhams reserves. That'll teach him to diss the Villa!
Stephen Jay Hawkings
...so he will STILL not want to move here. Fulham players now see a move to Villa as a sideways step at best. A bit depressing really. And if people are capable of interpretting us making a bid for Dempsey as brinkmanship to get Benteke, it is equally possible that Liverpool pleading poverty is a way to get Fulham to drop the fee they want for Dempsey. Not whinging for now, just stating a fact.
heavy d
It's just the typical politicking of the window really, best case scenario is that it makes Genk think we don't want Benteke and they rather cashing in on him and accept our offer, and Clit Dempsey (no typo) rots away in reserves for not Villanising.
Vlaartistic
Would have been very supprised to see Demsey accept a move to us. Lets face it Fulham are a safer bet than us at the moment so why bother to move ? Maybe in a seasons time and Lambert has his own set of Lions we will be a different propostion.Love Dempsey as a player and would have gladly taken Adam for 5 mill as well.
Merlin128777
Always a long shot. He'll go to Liverpool and flop just like some other big names they've had. Downing 20m, Henderson 20m, Carrol 35m. We'll be overtaking them once PL gets his side completed, settled and in form. UTV.
