US international Dempsey joins Fulham from MLS
LONDON, Jan 10 (Reuters) - American international forward Clint Dempsey has joined English Premier League club Fulham after being granted a work permit by the British Home Office.
'We're pleased this opportunity worked out for Clint. We wish him nothing but the best as he heads to the Premiership,' Revolution head coach Steve Nicol said on the club's website.
No details were released though British media said the deal was worth about £2 million ($3.88 million). He joins fellow Americans Brian McBride and Carlos Bocanegra at Fulham.
Dempsey, who can play in midfield or attack, represented the United States at last year's World Cup and scored their only goal. He chalked up 25 goals in 71 games with the Revolution.
'I've got the green light to go ahead. I've been waiting a long time and this move is a dream come true,' Dempsey was quoted as saying in Thursday's London Times newspaper.
