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.
