Clint Dempsey left the Premier League in a hurry last August. He might return to handle some unfinished business in early 2014.
Adrian Hanauer, general manager of Dempsey’s club — the Seattle Sounders — says the American soccer star will likely seek to join a Premier League club on loan during the MLS offseason, according to the Seattle Times.
“Clint has something in his contract that allows him to go [on loan] once during his contract, which obviously was intended for this offseason prior to the World Cup,” Hanauer said. “So his agent and he are kind of keeping me in the loop, and we’re sort of working on that. I can’t say for sure whether something will happen or not, but we won’t be surprised if that happens.”
Dempsey, 30, joined Seattle from Tottenham Hotspur in one of the most significant transfers in MLS history. While his production failed to meet expectations, he remains an attractive option for European clubs seeking short-term help in their attack.
