Fulham have revealed that former striker Clint Dempsey will return to the Premier League club on loan from Seattle Sounders.        

The American was a fans' favourite at Craven Cottage before leaving to join London rivals Tottenham in 2012, scoring 50 goals for the club and helping them reach the Europa League final in 2009-10.             

Dempsey, 30, will return from the beginning of January and be available until March, when the new Major League Soccer season begins.             

"Clint will be a boost for us," Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen told a news conference ahead of Saturday's home game against Manchester City.             

Fulham are second bottom of the Premier League table.
