Clint Dempsey’s national coach reckons the midfielder could make an earlier than expected return from injury for Fulham.

American coach Bob Bradley thinks Dempsey might be in line for a return to the Fulham side by the end of next month. Bradley recently checked on Dempsey’s progress from a knee injury, picked up at Blackburn last month, on a recent trip to England and was encouraged by his progress.

I think the hope is he’ll be ready to return to Fulham at some point, probably mid-to-late March.
