LONDON (AP) - Fulham will reject any offers for American Clint Dempsey in the January transfer window, manager Mark Hughes said Friday.

The 27-year-old forward and midfielder from Texas is Fulham’s top scorer this season with six goals, including five in the Premier League.

“I’m sure there is interest in Clint. Most good players are mentioned at some point in time leading into a window,” Hughes said. “There’s been no contact from any clubs for Clint or any other player nor would we encourage it because Clint’s very happy here, is enjoying his football and is having an impact for us.

“If there are any inquiries about Clint, they’ll be getting short shrift.”

Going into Saturday’s match against Sunderland, Fulham (2-5-9) sits one place above the three-team Premier League relegation zone thanks to goal difference.
