Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says his club has spoken to Fulham about signing United States forward Clint Dempsey.

Rodgers says “Clint is a player we’ve enquired about” as “he’s a very talented player,” adding that managing director Ian Ayre has been in contact with Fulham “to see what the position is. That is where we’re at.” 

The Liverpool manager was speaking on Wednesday while on the Premier League club’s three-match tour of the US and Canada.

Rodgers also ruled out a temporary move for England forward Andy Carroll, saying “to consider a loan period for someone the club spent 35 million pounds on isn’t something we’re looking to do at this moment in time.” 

Rodgers adds, however, that if a permanent offer for Carroll comes in then “we’d look at it.”
