Tottenham’s Clint Dempsey signs for Seattle Sounders
Clint Dempsey has left Spurs to return to the MLS with Seattle Sounders.
The USA international has gone back to his homeland in a deal believed to be roughly the same as the £6m Spurs paid to sign him from Tottenham 12 months ago.
The 30-year-old said: “I am very excited about coming back to the MLS and thrilled to be joining Sounders.
“Having recently played in Seattle with the national team, I experienced the incredible atmosphere and the passion from the supporters first-hand. It’s going to be an honour to represent the fans in Seattle.”
Dempsey last played in the MLS for New England Revolution in more than six years ago. He joined Fulham in January 2007, going on to score 50 goals in 184 league appearances for them.
