Clint Dempsey Signs For Tottenham Hotspur In £6m Deal

dempsey spurs Clint Dempsey Signs For Tottenham Hotspur In £6m Deal

Tottenham Hotspur has signed US international Clint Dempsey in a last minute deal on transfer deadline day.

Out of all of the last minute transfer deals, Dempsey’s transfer is the one that went back-and-forth more than any. Yesterday, it was reported that Liverpool offered cash plus Jordan Henderson for Dempsey, but Henderson didn’t want to move to Fulham. Then this morning, Aston Villa agreed a £5m (plus £2m add-on) deal with Fulham. However, Dempsey turned down the opportunity to move to Villa Park because it was reported he wanted a move to Anfield instead.

And then today, Liverpool and Tottenham lodged deals for Dempsey. Reportedly, Liverpool offered £4m, which Fulham turned down, but Fulham and Dempsey were able to agree a £6m deal with Tottenham Hotspur with just one hour to go before the deadline.

The move from Fulham to Tottenham is certainly a step-up for Dempsey. Tottenham desperately need a proven striker, so Dempsey’s arrival is a win-win.

What’s your opinion about Dempsey’s move from Fulham to Tottenham? Can Deuce be as pivotal at Spurs as he was at Craven Cottage? Will he be able to help Tottenham qualify for the Champions League at the end of this season?
