Dempsey signed for Tottenham Hotspur after a deadline-day twist

The Dempsey saga came to a dramatic end as the American attacker joined Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur from Fulham. After bids and enquiries from Aston Villa and Liverpool were rejected it seemed as if the American was set to stay at Fulham, but in a surprising turn of events a bid was made, and then accepted, from our North London counterparts for around £6m.

Dempsey leaves after 5 and a half memorable years at Fulham football club despite a bitter end to his term here, including scoring a marvellous chipped winner against Juventus in the Europa League and providing the goal which sustained Fulham’s Premier League status at the end of the 06/07 season – which set in place a remarkable 5 years for our club. HammyEnd wishes Dempsey the best of luck.
