DeAndre Yedlin

DeAndre Yedlin had a promising summer with the US Men’s National Team, but despite that, he has still found himself on the outside looking in at Mauricio Pochettino’s plans at Tottenham. Now, he’ll find more consistent playing time after he was sold today to recently relegated club Newcastle United for an undisclosed fee, rumored to be around five million pounds or about $6.6 million.

Yedlin spent last season on loan with Newcastle’s arch-rivals Sunderland, and signed a five year contract with the club. He figures to be high on their depth chart after the club sold previous incumbent right back Daryl Janmaat to Watford for 7.5 million pounds.

“Newcastle is such a big and historic club, and I’m excited to have the honor of playing for them. Hopefully I can do great things here,” the 23-year-old told Newcastle’s official website.
