Clint Dempsey is offered a new two-year contract extension by Fulham, according to manager Martin Jol.

Fulham manager Martin Jol has revealed that the club have offered Clint Dempsey a new deal to remain at Craven Cottage.

The American is the club's top goalscorer this season and Jol admits that he is desperate for him to sign a new deal.

Jol said: "We offered him an improved deal last week. He's our top goalscorer and that tells you everything.

"I can't look to the future but I hope he will [stay]. If you come to our lodge the grass is very green and there are not many players who have left Fulham over the last few years who did well.

"Hopefully I can convince Clint that he should stay with us for another couple of years."

Fulham are currently 10th in the Premier League after Saturday's 2-1 win over Norwich City.
