MOST COMMENTED

Clint Dempsey’s agent on Monday sought to dispel rumors that the Tottenham forward could be sold this summer. “I have been in constant contact with Tottenham and they are happy with Clint and he’s happy with the club,” Lyle Yorks, Dempsey’s agent, told the blog Soccer By Ives. “He’s reporting back shortly. He’ll be back there and will be in Hong Kong (for preseason) and everything’s good. Things could change obviously if a team came in with a big offer, but they are not actively trying to move Dempsey.”

Late last week, the Times of London said the U.S. international is one of several players Spurs is looking to sell this summer. Yorks, who is also Jozy Altidore’s agent, said this is untrue: “There have been no meetings and no discussions. Not with Tottenham or with any other teams about Clint. His focus right now is returning to the team and helping them qualify for Champions League.”

SBI claims the club is unlikely to offload Dempsey because at 30 years of age he is unlikely to generate a big enough offer for it make sense to move him. Dempsey scored 12 goals and added nine assists in all competitions for Tottenham last season.
