Tottenham Hotspur forward Clint Dempsey is reported to be on the verge of joining Major League Soccer side Seattle Sounders.

Spurs are expected to recoup the majority of the £6m fee that they paid Fulham for Dempsey's services when the 30-year-old moved across London last summer.

Sounders coach Sigi Schmid has done his best to keep a lid on speculation regarding a deal to sign Dempsey, but BBC Sport claims that the American international will be confirmed as a Seattle player within 48 hours.

Dempsey would become the fourth former Premier League player on Seattle's books, joining Djimi Traore, Obafemi Martins and Marcus Hahnemann.
