Default Clint Dempsy returning to MLS

After announcing earlier this week that the MLS has sights on expanding to 24 teams by 2020, American soccer fans got more encouraging news when reports dropped Friday night that native son Clint Dempsey will be returning to U.S. soil.

Dempsey's former club, Tottenham Hotspur, announced early Saturday that the Texan had indeed been sold back to the MLS. Multiple reports have confirmed that the Seattle Sounders have acquired Dempsey, and an announcement could come as early as Saturday night.

Terms of the deal are not yet known -- no one from the Sounders will discuss the transfer -- but some reports have Dempsey due to receive $32 million in base salary. Also, according to NBC Sports, Seattle will pay a $9 million transfer fee -- the highest in MLS history.

Dempsey, 30, began playing overseas in 2007 and has accumulated 57 international goals. He also spent three seasons in the MLS early in his career with the New England Revolution, winning rookie of the year honors in 2007.
