Seattle Sounders

Strengths:

Been there, done that. This Seattle team knows all the trappings that come with a conference final, so experience is most definitely on the side of coach Brian Schmetzer's men. The Sounders also boast an impressive attacking force that can strike in various forms. If you...

Clint Dempsey says he will "never say no" to a national team call-up, even after the United States' failure to qualify for the World Cup.

Sources said this week that Dempsey has agreed to a new deal to return to the Seattle Sounders next season, but at 34, he's at an age where many of his contemporaries consider international retirement.

The likes of Arjen Robben, Javier Mascherano and Daniele De Rossi and Laurent Koscielny have all announced plans in recent weeks to leave their national...

Clint Dempsey has signed a new contract with the Seattle Sounders, multiple sources have confirmed to ESPN FC.

Sources said Dempsey has signed a one-year deal worth between $1.5-2 million, and he will remain one of the team's three designated players.

Dempsey's current contract, which according to the MLS Players' Union will pay him $3.89m in guaranteed compensation in 2017, is set to expire at the end of the current campaign, though Seattle held a club option.

As such, there was speculation that...

Sounders' Clint Dempsey named MLS Comeback Player of the Year

Clint Dempsey was able to come back from a heart condition and silence all doubters with a superb 2017 season.
As focus turns to the conference finals, check out the best goals so far in the 2017 MLS Cup Playoffs.

TUKWILA, Wash. -- Seattle Sounders forward Clint Dempsey was named the MLS Comeback Player of the Year for 2017, acknowledging his play in a season where he again became the leading scorer for the Seattle Sounders and reclaimed a place on the U.S. national team. 

Dempsey, who scored 12 league goals this year and two more in the playoffs, was sidelined last season by an irregular heartbeat. And he says a full season of playing back at an elite level has eased his concerns.

"I just think I got...

The Seattle Sounders are working on a new contract to bring Clint Dempsey back to the team next season, sources confirmed to ESPN FC.

As first reported by FourFourTwo on Monday, both parties are confident in a deal for the 2018 season, when Dempsey, 34, will be entering an option year on his current contract.

However, the Sounders are likely to seek a reduction of the $3.89 million he made this season, creating the need for a new contract.

After missing much of the 2016 season with an irregular heartbeat,...

Time is running out for Clint Dempsey to make his mark in MLS Cup playoffs

Seattle and Vancouver will head to the second leg of their Western Conference semifinal deadlocked after a draw in Canada.
Brian Schmetzer is pleased with Seattle's clean sheet in Vancouver but thinks his side should have created more chances.

Clint Dempsey has as glittering a résumé as one can find for an American player. He remains tied with Landon Donovan for the most goals in United States men's national team history, with 57. His exploits at the club level, in particular the parts of seven seasons he spent with Premier League side Fulham, are impressive as well.

Yet there is one stage where Dempsey, 34, hasn't had things go his way. That would be the MLS Cup playoffs, and time is running out to set that right.
