Fulham midfielder Clint Dempsey admits he has ambitions of playing in the UEFA Champions League at some stage of his career.

The United States international is currently on the books of Fulham, where he has spent the last four years.

During that time he has become an established Premier League performer, with his ability to provide a goal-threat from a deep-lying position making him a useful asset to any side.

He has played a leading role in the Cottagers’ recent successes, with a run through to the 2010 Europa League final marking a significant high for both Dempsey and the club.

The 27-year-old forward admits he would relish the opportunity to turn out at such a lofty level on a regular basis, with continuous improvement the target for any player.

Dempsey said: “I have been here for four years and, with Simon Davies, I am one of the longest-serving players.

“That’s the way things are now in the game because it is so competitive and it is all about winning. It has been a good time and I’ve enjoyed my experiences.

“I still have ambitions. I’d like to play in the Champions League. You want to win cups, too.

“Anyone who plays wants those things and all you can do is make the most of where you are at, and that is what I am doing.

“I have won two CONCACAF Gold Cups with my country, now maybe I can win a final with a club.”
