Tottenham new boy Dempsey to become highest-paid American player

Clint Dempsey has become America's highest-paid soccer player following his move to Tottenham.

The USA international completed his £6million ($US9.5m) transfer from Fulham to Spurs late last week in a deal which will make him the top earning American player in history.

Yahoo Sports suggests that Dempsey will earn around $22million over the next three years after making the move from Southwest London to the North.

Dempsey wanted out at Craven Cottage earlier this summer and it appeared he was headed for Liverpool but a move to Anfield did not occur as Spurs swooped to bring him to White Hart Lane alongside ex-Cottagers teammate Moussa Dembele.
