The agent of Clint Dempsey has played down talk of a move away from Tottenham.

The player’s agent, Lyle Yorks, said there is every chance Dempsey will stay at Spurs ahead of the forthcoming season.

“I have been in constant contact with Tottenham and they are happy with Clint and he’s happy with the club,” Yorks said.

“He’s reporting back shortly. He’ll be back there and will be in Hong Kong (for pre-season) and everything’s good. There have been no meetings and no discussions. Not with Tottenham or with any other teams about Clint.”

Yorks added: “Things could change obviously if a team came in with a big offer, but they are not actively trying to move Dempsey.

“His focus right now is returning to the team and helping them qualify for the Champions League.”
