Dempsey to Join Everton?

  • Metro, Friday, August 2, 2013 2:44 PM
According to the British tabloid Metro, Clint Dempsey is on the verge of joining Everton. Rumors that Dempsey will leave Tottenham were fueled by a tweet sent out by a Seattle soccer fan containing a photo he said was of the two of them Thursday night at San Francisco International Airport.

The fan initially claimed Dempsey was headed on the same flight to Seattle, sparking rumors that the USA international could be heading to the Seattle Sounders in MLS, but he then tweeted that he had spoken to soon and Dempsey "just went to a different gate."

Metro claims the Texan is instead negotiating a move to Everton, which is currently in California on its preseason tour, having beat Juventus on penalties Wednesday in the Guinness International Champions Cup at AT&T Park in San Francisco. It will play Real Madrid Saturday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Tottenham, meanwhile, plays a friendly at Monaco on Saturday.

Dempsey is unlikely to want to move away from the Premier League, and now that Paulinho, Nacer Chadli and Roberto Soldado have all joined Spurs, it seems the 30-year-old needs to look elsewhere for regular playing time.
