Clint Dempsey is close to becoming the newest member of the Seattle Sounders, ESPN reports.

The Sounders are finalizing an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur to transfer Dempsey's rights back to MLS. The 30-year-old played with the New England Revolution from 2004-06.

The American Dempsey is expected to be introduced to his new club as early as Saturday. On Friday, Seattle coach Sigi Schmid downplayed speculation the team had made a move for the U.S. star and national team captain.

Dempsey, who joined the Spurs last year after several seasons with Fulham, scored seven Premier League goals in 29 games.
