Former Sounders star in trouble as Spurs linked with £3.5m defender

Former Seattle Sounders star, DeAndre Yedlin, could find himself further down the pecking order at Tottenham Hotspur as they are interested in Burnley‘s Kieran Trippier, according to the Telegraph.

Yedlin, who linked up with Spurs in January 2015, signed a four-year deal in August 2014, and has made just one Premier League appearance. The 21-year-old speedster could see his playing time further limited if Spurs sign Trippier.

The US international can be used as a winger, but his preferred and arguably best position is at right-back. With Spurs looking to add Trippier to their squad, Yedlin would be one of four right-back options at the club and he has next to no Premier League experience.

At this moment in time a loan away from Spurs could be a good move for Yedlin as his playing time looks as if it will be limited. If he can gain some Premier League experience he has a chance of showing why Spurs wanted to bring him to the club.

Yedlin will hope to impress Pochettino in Spurs’ pre-season and he will more than likely be called up for the US Men’s National Team squad for the upcoming Gold Cup.
