Clint Dempsey has reportedly undergone a medical with Fulham ahead of a two-month loan deal, reports BBC Sport.
He scored a half century of goals for the Cottagers in a total of around 180 appearances.
Spurs signed him a season ago for a fee which is believed to be around £6million, but on not being able find his feet at White Hart Lane, he left for Seattle Sounders in a deal worth $9million in the summer.
The former New England Revolution striker has reportedly completed a medical at Craven Cottage and looks well set to join his former club for just a limited time of two months.
His main job will be to keep Fulham in the Premier League, who have been handed a rejuvenation after former Manchester United assistant coach Rene Meulensteen was appointed as manager.
Meulensteen said: "He's having a medical over the last couple of days and the next couple of days, so hopefully that will all work out.
"Clint has spent so many years playing in the Premier League.
"We know where his strengths lie whether it is coming in from the left or playing as a deeper striker or a number nine depending on who you are playing against.
"The most important thing is that he will be a good boost for us."
Fulham were trampled 4-1 by Merseyside outfit Everton in their last game, and things are not going at all well for them.
They currently lie 19th in the Premier League table, which is too low and disappointing for them.
The loan deal will provide Dempsey with regular playing time before he returns home for the start of the new Major League Soccer season on 8 March.
