LONDON (AP) — Tottenham says United States forward Clint Dempsey is returning to Major League Soccer, ending his six-year spell in English soccer.

The 30-year-old Dempsey played for the New England Revolution from 2004-06 before joining Fulham in 2007. He moved to Tottenham last summer and scored 12 goals in 43 games, but wasn't a regular.

Tottenham says in a statement Saturday "we have reached agreement with Major League Soccer for the transfer of Clint Dempsey," adding "we wish Clint every success for the future."
