After impressing for the United States at the 2014 World Cup, it has been reported that Spurs are showing an interest in 21 year old defender DeAndre Yedlin. The Seattle Sounders man is a versatile and promising player but having already signed another young centre back in Eric Dier, surely the club are looking for someone with greater experience.
Our former keeper Kasey Keller is one man who feels that Yedlin would be better looking elsewhere.
“Spurs is a tricky place to play,” Keller said when talking to Goal.com. “They’re a team that has a lot of turnover in players. Spurs are a team that has the money, and they are always looking for a bargain, but it’s a tough place to go.
“I just want to see young American players play regularly, week in and week out. If that’s at Tottenham, great. But if it’s not, then it’s not the right move. It’s hard to develop if you don’t play.
“I’m not sure DeAndre would even qualify for a work permit. He’s never started a game for the national team, [England] is a tough place to get a work permit.
“My guess would be that if Tottenham is in the race, it would be to sign DeAndre and loan him out somewhere.”
All of this makes any deal seem unlikely but have you seen enough of the player to suggest that Spurs should strengthen any pursuit?
