Clint Dempsey is set for a transfer back to the Premier League on loan from the Seattle Sounders. Tottenham Hotspur have first right of refusal, but The Mirror newspaper is reporting that Fulham, Aston Villa and Everton are interested in signing the American striker.
Seattle general manager Adrian Hanauer said:
“Clint’s contract allows him to go on loan for the off-season.
“All parties are working on a deal and we won’t be surprised if it happens.”
However, Dempsey has suffered a right calf strain injury, which has forced him to withdraw from the US national team squad. The injury should not rule him out of a loan deal to England however.
