Tottenham reach agreement with Seattle Sounders for the transfer of US international DeAndre Yedlin
Capped seven times by the US, DeAndre caught the eye with his performances at this summer's World Cup.
Born in Seattle, DeAndre joined Sounders’ Academy in 2010-11 and became their first home-grown player when he signed in January, 2013. The 21-year-old made it into the MLS All-Star Team in his first season last year – the first ‘rookie’ to do so in the MLS since 2005 – and earned the honour again this season for the recent MLS All-Star game against Bayern Munich.
DeAndre has now played 52 times for the Sounders in all competitions and lined-up against us in our 3-3 friendly draw at CenturyLink Field on July 19, the first match of this summer’s Tour of North America.
