White Hart Lane side clinch Craven Cottage forward signing.
Tottenham are having a very productive transfer deadline day. Having secured a deal to sign French international keeper Hugo Lloris the North London side have now landed Fulham forward Clint Dempsey.
The 29 year old has been linked with a move away from Craven Cottage for a couple of months now and his attempts to engineer a move away from Fulham have led to him being frozen out by Martin Jol, fined and out of the West London club’s first team picture for the opening Premier League matches of the season.
Dempsey had a stand out season last term, netting 23 goals in all competitions.
Andre Villas-Boas may well have felt it imperative to bring in another goal-scoring option and the fact that Dempsey can play in a variety of attacking roles will also have played a part in the Portuguese boss’s pursuit of the Texan.
Clint Dempsey can play as an orthodox striker as well as in an advanced attacking midfield role behind the front men.
Tottenham have today also sold a few players to make way for their new additions with Giovani dos Santos, Rafael Van der Vaart and Danny Rose (on a season long loan deal) all leaving the club.
