Fulham owner Shahid Khan has welcomed the loan signing of Seattle Sounders striker Clint Dempsey.

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Khan was writing in his match programme notes for yesterday's defeat to Sunderland.

"This is an excellent development on many fronts, but there's no storyline more important than the simple fact that Clint will make us a more competitive team from the moment he steps onto the pitch this afternoon in league play, wearing his familiar Fulham kit.

"Clint's interest in returning to Fulham on loan was every bit as strong as our desire to have him back, and this makes for a wonderful homecoming for everyone. No one is happier to welcome Clint home than I am."
