Clinton Drew ‘Clint’ Dempsey is an American football player who currently features for the English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur. He plays as an attacking midfielder or a winger.
Dempsey was interested in football from a very early age and actually followed Argentina and Diego Armando Maradona. He made his professional debut for Major League Soccer club New England Revolution in 2004 and scored 25 goals in 71 league matches, and in January 2007 was signed by Premiership side Fulham for 4 million dollars, becoming the then most expensive MLS player.
Dempsey immediately settled into the first team at Fulham and was a key player for Fulham as they staved off relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2007-2008 season. He continued to remain an important player for the Cottagers as they reached the final of the Europa League in 2009-10 and established themselves as a top 10 Premier League club.
In the summer of 2012 after making 184 league appearances and scoring 50 goals, Dempsey joined Tottenham Hotspur, but failed to make himself one of the first-team regulars at White Hart Lane in the 2012-13 campaign.
Dempsey made his international debut for the United States in 2004 and has played 94 matches for his nation so far, scoring 32 goals in the process. He played for the USA at the 2006 and 2010 World Cup finals.
