Clint Dempsey is getting out of Fulham and has agreed to a three-year deal with Tottenham Hotspur just hours before the transfer window closed, reports Yahoo! Sports.  Liverpool was though to be the frontrunner but were unable to come to an agreement with Fulham.

The transfer fee is reported to be $9.5 million.

Dempsey, who spent the last five years with Fulham following a stint in Major League Soccer, had been seeking a move to a Champions League-caliber club after scoring 23 goal in 46 games in all competitions for the Cottagers last season.
Aston Villa, Sunderland and Arsenal were all interested in Dempsey's services in the past week.
