Must have been a slow news day in Isleworth.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Clint Dempsey’s agent was touting his client to all-comers given his extraordinary goalscoring feats in January and the man himself has previously voiced a desire to test his talent in the Champions’ League. But is there any basis for the ‘Sky Sports¬†understands …’ shtick other than Mark Hughes managed him for a season at Craven Cottage? I don’t think so.
