Clint Dempsey to quit Fulham?

Clint Dempsey suggests he will quit Fulham for a Champions League side.

Clint Dempsey has suggested that he will quit Fulham if he gets a better offer.

The club will re-enter the Europa League this season but the 28-year-old striker - voted Fulham's player of the season for 2010/11 - said he would jump ship for a chance to play in the Champions League.

"Right now, I'm thinking about Europe and playing in Champions League - at least experiencing that in my career, being in Champions League," said Dempsey, who holds the Fulham record for goals scored.

"That's a goal. That's every player's goal. Every player wants to win trophies and play at the highest level possible. If someday I get the opportunity to play for a big club in the Champions League, that would be great. I'd be lying if I said that wasn't a dream."

Dempsey, who has been linked to AC Milan in recent weeks, made his comments ahead of Martin Jol's appointment as Mark Hughes' replacement at Craven Cottage.
