Seattle Sounders and U.S. men's national team star Clint Dempsey is set to return to former club Fulham for a two-month loan.

LONDON (AP) - Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen says United States striker Clint Dempsey has undergone a medical test and is set to return to the club on loan.

Dempsey scored 50 goals in 184 league matches for Fulham from 2007-12 but left for Tottenham before moving to the Seattle Sounders in August.

The 30-year-old Dempsey could play for two months from the opening of the winter transfer window in January, because the MLS season does not resume until the second week in March.

"He's having a medical and we're looking into that. It would be a real boost for us. Hopefully that will all work out," Meulensteen told FulhamFC.com. "Clint spent so many years playing in the Premier League, and we all know where his strengths are. He can come in from the left or play as a second striker depending on who you're playing against. It speaks volumes for him that he wants to come back here. Initially it's for January and February."
