TUKWILA, Wash. (AP) It's now certain that Clint Dempsey's 2016 season is over and his future beyond this year may be in doubt too.

The Seattle Sounders announced Tuesday that Dempsey will miss the remainder of the season due to an irregular heartbeat that has sidelined him for more than a month.

Seattle general manger Garth Lagerwey made the announcement ahead of Wednesday's home match against Chicago as the Sounders are contending for one of the final playoff spots in the Western Conference.
