Tottenham have Clint Dempsey loan option

Published Add your comment

Clint Dempsey's contract allows him to move on loan for two months from January and he is not short of suitors, according to the Daily Mirror.

Tottenham have first refusal on Dempsey after selling him to Seattle Sounders this summer, however, Aston Villa, Everton and former club Fulham are also interested. 

Dempsey has only made seven appearances for his new club, scoring one goal, as his side crashed out in the Western Conference semi-finals 5-3 on aggregate to Portland Timbers.

But it seems he may be making a swift return to the Premier League, where he scored 57 goals in 213 games for London clubs Spurs and Fulham, with Seattle general manager Adrian Hanauer prepared for his short-term exit.

"Clint's contract allows him to go on loan for the off-season," the Daily Mirror quote his as saying.

"All parties are working on a deal and we won't be surprised if it happens."

It remains to be seen whether Tottenham are interested in taking up their first refusal option on the player, as the club invested heavily in the summer and have a wealth of talent in midfield.

The White Hart Lane outfit are struggling for goals though, and Dempsey can also operate as a forward if need be.

He joined Spurs in controversial circumstances from Fulham and the Craven Cottage club's fans may not welcome him back with welcome arms if he was to rejoin Martin Jol and new head coach Rene Meulensteen.

The 30-year-old would also be a good addition to the Everton and Villa squads, with a transfer tussle over his loan capture sure to take place.

The American international has 36 goals in 101 caps and will captain his country at next year's World Cup in Brazil.
