West Ham United are the frontrunners to land Seattle Sounders forward Clint Dempsey’s signature this January.

The 30-year-old moved back to America over the summer after a year with Tottenham Hotspur last season.

The USA international is looking for a loan move this January during the MLS off-season and a host of Premier League clubs are interested in his services.

Tottenham are understood to have the first option on taking the attacker on loan while Everton and Aston Villa could also attempt to sign the American.

However, a source has told SportsDirect News West Ham are the favourites to land Dempsey’s signature this winter with Hammers boss Sam Allardyce searching for more goals this term.

The east London outfit have only netted 11 goals in their 11 Premier League games so far this season and are short of attacking options with the likes of Andy Carroll still recovering from injury.
