LA Galaxy attacker Clint Dempsey has his pick of Premier League clubs should he choose to return to England on-loan in January.

The Sunday Mirror says Stoke City have joined the race to take Dempsey on loan from the MLS.

Fulham, West Ham and Everton are already tracking the front-man, but the Potters have now made their interest known to his American club Seattle Sounders.

Tottenham have first option to re-sign Dempsey on loan, but White Hart Lane sources believe it is unlikely they will move for the 30-year-old.
