The Seattle Sounders captain said there are a couple of individuals he still talks to at his old club, including a former Fulham teammate.

Seattle Sounders' former Spurs star Clint Dempsey has been discussing his relationship with a couple of players at the North London club, in a press conference ahead of the match between Tottenham and the MLS All-Star side on Wednesday.

Dempsey spent just one season at White Hart Lane after moving from Fulham in 2012, and though it is fair to say he would probably look back at the Cottagers as his 'English side' if he had to pick a single team, the 32-year-old did reveal that there were a couple of players he still kept in touch with at Spurs when asked, even if the first name wasn't someone he ever played with in the Premier League.

"I still stay in touch with [DeAndre] Yedlin," Dempsey joked of his national teammate in the MLS press conference, with the fullback only moving to Tottenham at the start of the year and of course joining the forward whenever Jurgen Klinsmann announces a US squad.

Dempsey went on to mention someone that he did play alongside at the Lane, and who is hoping to be a big part of Mauricio Pochettino's plans next season.

"Moussa Dembele, he's a great guy, great player," Dempsey added. "I played with him at Fulham too. Always good to see him doing well, I look forward to seeing him."

And the forward also explained how there had been a lot of changes since he was at the club two years ago, before joking that he would aid the All-Stars' coach Pablo Mastroeni if there were any questions about the Tottenham squad.

"I know some of the staff but a lot of the faces have changed since I was there," he said. "But if Pablo wants to ask me some questions I’ll be sure to help him out."

Dempsey has been one of the stars of the MLS since moving to Seattle in 2013, and his first full season at the Sounders saw him score 17 goals in 31 games, his second best campaign ever.

At Tottenham, the forward netted 12 times in 43 games, before he was sold by Andre Villas-Boas the same summer as Gareth Bale.
