ASTON Villa have had a bid accepted for Fulham forward Clint Dempsey, according to the Daily Mail
The American has been the subject of intense speculation throughout the summer, with Liverpool and more recently Sunderland, said to be vying for his signature.
But it would seem that Villa are the first to test Fulham’s resolve with a £7million bid which has been accepted by the West London club.
With Dempsey also reportedly in talks with Arsenal, the future of the American international moves one step closer to clarification.
