After a few weeks of speculation, DeAndre Yedlin’s transfer to Tottenham has become official.  He will spend the rest of the MLS season with Seattle before joining up with Tottenham for the 2015-16 season.  There is some confusion on what will happen to him between the end of the MLS season and 2015-16 as that is a lot of time (and you would figure that he would be in the USMNT’s plans for the 2015 Gold Cup).

Tottenham’s website has a video interview up with Yedlin.  Ives also got some words from Yedlin about the move.  Once he finally gets to North London, he will become he fourth different American to play for the Spurs in the Premier League.  And to top off the Yedlin links, Grantland did a feature on him earlier this week.

Earlier this week, the FA of Ireland confirmed the rumored USMNT friendly for November.  And now it looks like the rumored friendly against Colombia for September is no longer going to take place.

Michael Stephens, Andrew Jacobson and Bob Bradley are going streaking . . . to the semifinals of the Norwegian Cup after defeating Haugesund on Wednesday (highlights).

Howie posted some US U-23 vs. Bahamas highlights last week, but US Soccer have now put up their own highlights from the match with some post-game comments from Tab Ramos, Luis Gil and Dennis Flores.

Tab Ramos also recently talked to ASN’s Brooke Tunstall about the U-23 development.

According to this report, Thomas Dooley and the Philippines national football were unable to schedule a friendly with the USMNT, so now they are looking into a friendly with the US U-23 team.

Your monthly reminder that Landon Donovan has a great sense of humor.

Timothy Chandler recently took part in a crossbar challenge with some Eintracht Frankfurt teammates for the Bundesliga’s Youtube channel.

Today’s really silly season link of the day:  Barcelona are eyeing Fabian Johnson.

Grant Wahl did a quick video for about the few Americans in the Premier League.

San Jose Earthquakes goalkeeper David Bingham has been loaned out to Norwegian Adeccoligaen (second tier) side Strømmen.

US U-20 forward Andrija Novakovich scored three goals against AFC Wimbledon in U-21 action over the weekend (highlights).

Some new Americans in Europe.  Connor Brehm has signed with Carrick Rangers and has been loaned out to PSNI.  Both teams play in the Northern Ireland Football League Championship 1.  And goalkeeper Ryan Onwukwe is joining German sixth division club FCA Darmstadt.  Thanks to @WisconsinSoccer for the heads up.

Just a few links

Sorry for the lack of updates this week, but life (damn you, life!) has been getting in the way.  That said, here are a few links.

Jurgen Klinsmann has been doing a lot of Q&A’s with US Soccer’s website and I approve.  Here is his latest.  Reading between the lines a bit, it sounds like we will see Terrence Boyd, John Brooks and Fabian Johnson for the upcoming USMNT games.  Brooks and Johnson are both coming back from injury.

Speaking of Johnson’s injury, it sounds like he is returning to training this week and could possibly play this weekend.

As for some highlights from this weekend.  Charles Kazlauskas scored a goal on Monday.  Sacha Kljestan picked up an assist and two yellow cards against PSG while Jermaine Jones went 90 minutes against Chelsea in Champions League action.

Still no highlights at the moment, but Jozy Altidore had an assist in Sunderland’s 2-1 win over Southampton in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.  Sunderland’s website called the pass “unselfish”.  And they have some photos up from the game, including a couple of Altidore.

Brian Sciaretta gives us his thoughts on the Julian Green situation.

Want a Top 100 list of American goalkeepers?  Will is a freak and has this list for you.

Number 35 on that list, San Jose’s David Bingham, is headed to FC Copenhagen for an extended training stint.  With the MLS season coming to an end, it is that time of year where various MLS players head to Europe for training wither various clubs.
