The Times is reporting that Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas Boas has decided to transfer list American midfielder Clint Dempsey. The USA international had an average season with Spurs by his standards last season, and as the Portuguese manager improves his squad it appears Dempsey has been deemed surplus to requirements.
According to the report from The Times, Villas Boas is keen to find a buyer for the former Fulham player as he aims to further improve his squad. Tottenham have seen just one signing arrive at White Hart Lane this summer, as Brazilian midfielder Paulinho arrived at the club following the conclusion of the Confederations Cup.
The Brazilian’s arrival means that Spurs have Paulinho, Sandro, Scott Parker, Jake Livermore, Tom Huddlestone, Mousa Dembele, Gylfi Sigurdsson, and Lewis Holtby on the books as far as players who can play centrally in midfield, forcing Andre Villas Boas to clear some room. Dempsey, it appears, is one of the midfielders who will have to find a new home as a result, despite the fact that the American has two years remaining on his contract.
The same report from The Times states that Scott Parker’s White Hart Lane exit is also imminent, as QPR line up a move for the former West Ham United midfielder, which would see him join up with former boss Harry Redknapp.
