Liverpool transfer target Clint Dempsey has not travelled with the Fulham squad for their pre-season training camp in Switzerland.
Fulham have made clear their desire to keep Clint Dempsey
• Jol wants Dempsey stay
• Rodgers confirms Dempsey enquiry
Dempsey, who scored 23 goals in 45 games for Fulham last season, held talks with manager Martin Jol and it was agreed he should remain in London and train with the youth team.
The Cottagers insist the decision was based purely on the 29-year-old’s lack of fitness, rather than a desire to facilitate any move to Liverpool, who made an enquiry for Dempsey earlier this summer.
