BRIAN SCIARETTA - Wednesday, August 13, 2014
After weeks of speculation, Seattle Sounders right back DeAndre Yedlin has come to terms with Tottenham Hotspurs on a four year deal.
Yedlin, 21, will continue with Seattle for the rest of the season and possibly into the start of next season but Tottenham expect him to join the club for the start of the 2015/15 season at the latest
"I'm very excited to get into the Premier League and challenge myself in front of some of the best players in the world," Yedlin told the Spurs official site. "I'm excited to join this club. From what I've seen, it's amazing - some of the best facilities in Europe if not the world. It's a great team."
"I know with the new coach coming in, it's a style that fits the way I play," he added. "That's a big reason I made this decision. I am just excited to come in and learn under him and learn under the great players on this team and just get started."
Yedlin has enjoyed a meteoric rise in 2014 after earning his first international cap in January during a 2-0 win over South Korea. He surprisingly made the U.S. World Cup team and received positive reviews for his performance against Belgium in the 2-1 loss in the round of 16.
