Clint Dempsey believes Fulham can push for the top ten next season.

"You always want to be in one of the best leagues in the world and that is what the Premier League is," the USA attacker told Sky Sports.

"We have another year to right the wrongs, basically the year-and-a-half I have been here we have been in the relegation battle.

"We are trying to make sure we don't do what we did last year. I'm looking forward to getting back to pre-season.

"For a team that comes out of relegation trouble, realistically we are looking to finish in the top half. But who knows what will happen."
