Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that the club have reached an agreement with Major League Soccer to send US international Clint Dempsey to Major League Soccer.

The official statement on the Spurs website reads:

“The United States international returns to MLS after making 43 appearances and scoring 12 goals in our colors following his signing from Fulham last summer.

“We wish Clint every success for the future.”

Seattle Sounders is expected to be the final destination for Dempsey for a reported transfer fee of £6million and wages of £100,000 a week.

Dempsey had this to say about Seattle after playing there for the US men’s national team recently:

“I’m good friends with (Sounders forward) Eddie Johnson, and he always tells me what it’s like playing here, playing in front of the fans, just how it’s an atmosphere that’s comparable to what it is in Europe.

“It’s great to see that the game is building and that there are markets like this where people have passion for the game. I almost felt like I was in another country the other day when the Seattle Sounders game was on.”
