FC Dallas forward Brek Shea says that rumors of his move during the January transfer window to Premiership club Fulham are unfounded.
Reports earlier in the week surfaced that Fulham had their eye on Shea and that a $3.2 million transfer would occur during the winter transfer period.
However, the news of his move to England came as a surprise to the US Under-20 international who was quick to refute any talk that he would hopping across the Atlantic after the new year.
"I don't know anything about a Fulham move," Shea recently told YA. "Someone told me about it yesterday and it was the first I had heard about it."
The native of College Station, Texas also insisted that there has been no communication between himself and the London club.
"I've had no contact with Fulham," stated Shea. "I'm not really sure where that news came from."
The second overall pick in the 2008 MLS SuperDraft started and went the full 90 minutes in each of the US' three games at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Egypt.
Shea resumes MLS play on Wednesday night as FC Dallas visit San Jose.
