Clint Dempsey quits European and British football after six successful seasons to join MLS side Seattle Sounders back in his native country, United States. It is being reported that Seattle Sounders paid Tottenham 9 million US dollars for the US international. It is also being said that Dempsey will receive 32 million US dollars in base salary during his stay at Seattle Sounders. This move may be quite a surprise to many as Dempsey could have easily extended his stay in European football but the progress American soccer is making convinced Dempsey that a return to the US is the best move for him.
Clint Dempsey started his professional football career in the US at New England Revolution. In 2007 he moved to English side Fulham where he spent six seasons and became a fan favorite. Last season he moved to Tottenham where he enjoyed another successful season. Dempsey is also a mainstay within the national side. He represented US 99 times and found the back of the net 35 times. He is considered as one of the key players within the national side.
