Thursday 14 August 2014
United States international defender DeAndre Yedlin has signed a four-year contract with Tottenham Hotspur, but will remain with Seattle Sounders until next season, the Premier League club this morning.
The 21-year-old impressed during the recent World Cup in Brazil, having made his senior international debut in February.
"I'm very excited to join this club and I'm excited that I will be able to challenge myself against the best players in the world," Yedlin told Tottenham's website.
Under the terms of the deal, Seattle-born Yedlin will continue to play for the Sounders in the forthcoming MLS season, where he will be a team mate of US striker Clint Dempsey, who joined Seattle from Tottenham a year ago.
Yedlin, Seattle's first home-grown player to appear in the MLS, has made 52 appearances for the Pacific Northwest club and played in the recent friendly against Tottenham.
