Where Clint Demspey could move 

August, 30, 2012

British bookies are known for offering wagers on just about anything, so why should the Clint Dempsey transfer saga be any different?

Late Wednesday, less than 48 hours before Friday's 6 p.m. ET deadline, several U.K. oddsmakers had restored Liverpool as the favorite to land Fulham's in-limbo star.

They're assuming he moves, of course. But while the last two days of any transfer window are normally the busiest, the Texan's situation has been anything but normal. And as improbable as Dempsey spending another season with the Cottagers may seem, it's getting to the point where putting money on him leaving is a risky proposition if you're the betting type.

But for national team fans, the question remains: where will Dempsey be playing this season? Let's try our luck at handicapping the field.
