Dempsey has been in London this week for talks.
"He's having a medical and we're looking into that. It would be a real boost for us. Hopefully that will all work out," Meulensteen said yesterday.
"Clint spent so many years playing in the Premier League and we all know where his strengths are. He can come in from the left or play as a second striker depending on who you're playing against. It speaks volumes for him that he wants to come back here. Initially it's for January and February."
