After a difficult start to life in England, DeAndre Yedlin ended up having a good season while on-loan at Sunderland, as he helped the Black Cats to avoid relegation.

Yedlin eventually made the right-back position his own under the guidance of Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce and has spent the summer playing in that role for USA, as they competed as hosts at the Copa America.

Last night Yedlin and the USA were in action against Argentina, where they were thrashed 4-0 in the semi-final of the competition.

Though it was an unhappy evening for Yedlin, one moment in the game outlined his greatest asset. Lionel Messi won the ball and went on a run into the American half, only for Yedlin to sprint back at incredible speed and rob him of the ball.

Watch the incident below and let us know your thoughts on whether Yedlin has a future at Spurs, either this coming season or in the future.

  1. Sunderland fan here. We’d take Yedlin back like a shot. A liability at the start of the season he now looks safe at the back and has great pace going forward. He needs to improve his crossing ability and learn how to take a short throw in – his foul throw at Sid James Park set the Mags up for an equaliser and he’s done it since too.

    We are doing for Yedlin what we did for Danny Rose and you are getting the long term benefit. As you have two other RBs ahead of him he may come back on another season long loan as it’s a position that we have found hard to fill since Bardsley went to Stoke.

    • Many thanks for giving Yedlin the experience he needs, and i hope you are benefitting from Jermains experience he gained at Tottenham…. Good luck next season
