Fulham legend Brian McBride has backed Clint Dempsey over his imminent move to Liverpool.

Following Saturday 5-0 thumping of Norwich, Fulham boss Martin Jol claimed that Liverpool had yet to table a formal offer.

McBride told the London Evening Standard: "Clint's not only got the talent and the ability, but he's a very determined individual. He adapts extremely well to so many different situations.

"Take Fulham. He's had four or five different coaches but he's always put his head down and shown them what he's made of. I think that's a sign not only of a very good player but one who is able to adapt and make the transition regardless of who the manager is."
