Dempsey Departure Confirmed
Today, the club have announced that Clint Dempsey has returned to the MLS, ending a year at Spurs for the American.
However, in Spurs' brief statement regarding the transfer, the club he has transfered to has not been disclosed: 'We have reached agreement with Major League Soccer for the transfer of Clint Dempsey.
The United States international returns to MLS after making 43 appearances and scoring 12 goals in our colours following his signing from Fulham last summer. We wish Clint every success for the future.'
The fee paid for the 30 year old forward is around £6million, what we paid for him last year, and the club he has signed for is believed to be Seattle Sounders.
In my opinion, Dempsey has received a lot of harsh critiscm from the fans as many viewed him as a replacement for van der Vaart that didn't live up to his expectations or as a Moutinho alternative, which has gone against the American unfairly, as all three are completely different players.
I am saddened by Dempsey's departure, mainly because of the crucial goals he scored for us last year, some of them historic. You will always be remembered for slaying United - so long Deuce!
