The United States captain joined Spurs from fellow Premier League side Fulham last summer for around €7.5 million, scoring 12 goals in 43 appearances for the north London club.
Dempsey (30) first made a name for himself playing for the New England Revolution before joining Fulham, and is widely expected to join the Seattle Sounders, who currently sit seventh in the MLS Western Conference.
