Seattle Sounders head coach, Sigi Schmid has confirmed that right back DeAndre Yedlin was in Europe last week finalising a move to a European club. Yedlin returned to Seattle for the club’s match against Houston Dynamo, which he watched from the stands. Yedlin reportedly had a medical with Tottenham the day before. After the match, head coach Schmid told the media that Yedlin’s deal was near completion. “Yedlin’s deal is very close. Some things are not entirely complete yet, so we didn’t want to play him and have a risk of an injury happening without everything being finalised. Hopefully that will be finalized in the next day or two” Reports suggest that Yedlin is to be loaned back to the Sounders for the remainder of the MLS season if he was to join Tottenham. The fee will be around £2.75 million. Yedlin impressed at the World Cup with the USA, especially when he came off the bench early on against Belgium. He impressed Spurs even further when he had an excellent game against them in pre season.
