DeAndre Yedlin appeared on a Facebook Q & A with his former club the Seattle Sounders yesterday, in which he sounded keen when quizzed upon the chances of moving to Sunderland next season.
Yedlin spent last season on-loan at Sunderland and became an important part of Sam Allardyce’s team that successfully escaped relegation.
Linked to a return to the north east club, Yedlin said: “I think it’s awesome that that’s floating around.
“But I haven’t heard anything on a deal so it’s all kind of up in the air right now.
“I’m just waiting to hear to see what happens and I’m just trying to enjoy it.”
With Allardyce having been interviewed for the England job, it’s unlikely that a move for Yedlin will be forthcoming until the FA make a decision on who will replace Roy Hodgson.
Another season’s loan is a possibility, but with Tottenham having plenty of quality right-backs such as Kyle Walker, Keiran Trippier and young Kyle Walker-Peters coming through, it may well make the most sense for both Yedlin and the club to part ways.
