Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have both lodged deadline day bids for Clint Dempsey according to SkySports.

Aston Villa were first to make an offer early on Friday, but they withdrew their interest when Dempsey made it known he was not interested in joining them.

Sunderland have also shown an interest in the 29-year-old - but Sky Sports can now reveal that both Spurs and Liverpool have made contact with Fulham.

Liverpool's interest has been long-standing, but with the likes of Charlie Adam and more importantly Andy Carroll now leaving Anfield - they have room to bring in Dempsey.

However, Sky Sports also understands that Tottenham have joined the bidding and are keen to lure the American forward across the capital.
