Clint Dempsey joins Tottenham

Clint Dempsey will hop on the Northern Line in his much-anticipated arrival at Spurs.

The American striker has spent almost six years in London, where he amassed 60 goals in 224 appearances for the Cottagers.

His presence, guile and nose for the net alleviates some of the stress felt by Raphael Van der Vaart’s exodus.

Spurs spent $9.5 million for the 29-year-old forward, a hell of a bargain if you take into account the $30 million Liverpool shelled out for Jordan Henderson’s services last year.

While Dempsey injects verve, willingness, determination and strength in front of goal, Van der Vaart’s silky smooth skills in midfield will still will be hard to replace.

Dempsey has been named Fulham’s Premier League player of the year two years running and is the club’s all-time leading scorer.

Hopefully Dempsey will step onto the pitch at White Hart Lane and exude the confidence we all know he embodies. His ball-striking ability is topnotch and the imperious forward is also a superb header of the ball.

His experience and intricate knowledge of basically every centre-back in the league also bodes well for the Lillywhites.
