The long, drawn-out saga surrounding Clint Dempsey's club future has finally come to an end, and it has ended with his long-sought move to a bigger club than Fulham.

Dempsey has completed a transfer deadline day move to Tottenham. According to FOX Soccer, Dempsey moved to Tottenham in a $9.6 million transfer. Dempsey arrived at Spurs Lodge on Friday afternoon to undergo his medical and has now completed the move, signing a three-year contract.

The transfer ends a summer ordeal that saw few real offers made for the 29-year-old U.S. national team star. A potential move to Liverpool dominated headlines, particularly after Brendan Rogers admitted having interest in Dempsey, but that never culminated in an actual offer from the Reds. At least not until Friday.

Other clubs expressed interest, including Sunderland and Aston Villa, but it was ultimately Tottenham that stepped up with the offer that finally satisfied Fulham.

What do you think about Dempsey joining Tottenham? Think it's a great move? Wish he would have wound up elsewhere?
