Reports suggest that Tottenham Hotspur will get first refusal on a two-month loan deal for Seattle Sounders midfielder Clint Dempsey.

Tottenham Hotspur have got first refusal on a two-month loan deal for Clint Dempsey, according to a report.

The 30-year-old midfielder left White Hart Lane for Seattle Sounders in August, but a clause in his contract with the MLS outfit allows him to go out on loan during the off-season.

According to The Mirror, the North Londoners are first in line, although there is also thought to be strong interest from Fulham, Aston Villa and Everton.

"Clint's contract allows him to go on loan for the off-season," Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer is quoted as saying.

"All parties are working on a deal and we won't be surprised if it happens."

The United States international, who moved to Craven Cottage from New England Revolution in 2007, joined Spurs last year.
