Tottenham confirm signing of USA World Cup star DeAndre Yedlin

The 21-year-old caught the eye in his country’s last-16 encounter with Belgium.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR HAVE confirmed the signing of USA star DeAndre Yedlin and from Seattle Sounders for £2.4million (€2.9m) on a four-year deal.

The 21-year-old defender will remain at Seattle until the end of the 2014 MLS season, before going to Tottenham permanently.

“I’m very excited to come to the Premier League and challenge myself against some of the best players in the world,” the full-back told the official Tottenham website.

“The facilities are the best in Europe, if not the world. It’s a great team. I’m very excited.

“I’ve talked to Jurgen Klinsmann a lot about this move and he supports it, which was one of the big reasons behind the decision.”

Yedlin appeared in three of USA’s four World Cup matches, coming on as a substitute in each game, and impressing in particular against Belgium, after he replaced the injured Fabian Johnson in the 32nd minute.
