Clint Dempsey makes Tottenham debut in win over Reading

The American international was given a 12 minute cameo in Tottenham's road victory.
Clint Dempsey made his Tottenhan debut on Sunday, playing the final 12 minutes in his new team's comfortable 3-1 road victory over Reading.

The American slotted in at midfield, playing in a wide left role for Andre Villas-Boas' side.

The appearance was Dempsey's first of the EPL season, as he did not play for Fulham while his protracted transfer saga was resolved, finally ending with a last-minute transfer to north London on Aug. 31, the final day of the transfer window.

Jermain Defoe scored a brace in the match, while Gareth Bale also added a goal in Tottenham's first win of the season and first win under Villas-Boas. Hal Robson-Kanu scored a late consolation for the home side.
