MARTIN Jol insists Clint Dempsey never came close to qutting Fulham over the summer.
The USA star was linked with several clubs, with Arsenal rumoured to be interested in the £8million-rated 28-year-old, who has bagged 40 goals for the Whites since his switch from New England Revolution in 2007.
But boss Jol has played down speculation that Dempsey was set to leave Craven Cottage .
He said: “There wasn't a club coming in for him, a phone call or even showing interest and that was better because we don't want to sell him anyway.”
