Clint Dempsey says news on his immediate future likely “in the next week”

With rumors swirling of a loan move for Clint Dempsey back to the England, we may know if he ships out very soon.

Appearing from Kansas City on ESPN’s coverage of the World Cup draw, Dempsey told Bob Ley “we’re still waiting to see what will happen but we should know what’s going on in the next week.”

That certainly sounds like at least one move is in the works.

He then followed that up with, “For me it’s just about getting games and trying to get to that high level, and bring that back to the United States if I get the opportunity to go on loan.”

After telling many reporters in Kansas City that he wouldn’t speak on the subject, his comments to ESPN no doubt suggest he will be making moves in the next week.

But where to? Do Spurs indeed have a first-option to negotiate with the man they sold just months ago? Will he head off to Fulham to help his old club in their relegation battle under new management? Or will Everton or Aston Villa make a push to add to their American ranks?

It would seem we won’t have to wait much longer to find out what the Seattle Sounder’s European future holds.
