Spurs set to break even on 30-year-old forward.
According to MLSsoccer.com’s Seattle Sounders writer, the MLS club are set to pay Spurs $9m (around £6m) for forward Clint Dempsey.
Jeremiah Oshan said the Sounders were the only club willing to meet Spurs’ asking price for the USA international, who is set to become the Sounders’ third Designated Player.
Dempsey arrived at White Hart Lane from Fulham for £6m on August deadline day last summer, and scored five Premier League goals in 29 appearances last term, including home and away strikes against eventual champions Manchester United.
Can confirm Dempsey deal. Sounders apparently only team willing to pay $9m transfer fee.
