Sunderland targeting Yedlin return after loan successful loan spell


DeAndre Yedlin didn’t get off to the best start during his loan spell with Sunderland last season, but the young American defender certainly made an impression over the second half of the season.

The U.S. Men’s National Team right back joined the Black Cats on loan from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, and now, Yedlin could be on his way back to the Stadium of Light for the 2016/17 season.

New Sunderland coach David Moyes has tabbed Yedlin as a player he is interested in acquiring for a second consecutive loan move, but the former Everton and Manchester United boss isn’t jumping to any quick decisions with the 23-year-old.

“Both (Yan) M’Vila and Yedlin made decent impacts,” Moyes said. “They are players who we have talked about in the last week a lot, and we have spoken to people about them.

“So I would say that they are players who are out there, but they are among a number of players who we are looking at.”

While Moyes doesn’t seem anxious to complete a move for Yedlin, even with the new Premier League season less than two weeks away, the U.S. international remains a viable option for Sunderland if he is signed. Last season, Yedlin made 25 appearances for Sunderland across all competitions.

    “So I would say that they are players who are out there, but they are among a number of players who we are looking at.” Moyes said, talking about Yedlin and M”Villa. Not exactly a ringing endorsement.

      Yes or….. it sounds like a manager in the middle of trying to negotiate a favorable deal for himself.

    I realize money is money, but what a pissing away of a talent.

    Finishing 42 points back in a weaker EPL.

      “I realize money is money, but what a pissing away of a talent”

      Are you talking about over paid USMNT/MLSers again??

      Yedlin had a great year from a personal growth standpoint, became a better player and got paid handsomely.

      Whether you’re a fan of MLS or globally a fan of bigger leagues: pundits, coaches and players have all raved about Yedlin improving his game since leaving Seattle.

      Why on Earth you continue to be the biggest whiner SBI has ever seen is beyond me. If it’s an act its tired and if its sincere its sad.

      You can’t say it’s a “pissing away of talent” if the player specifically in Yedlins case, is getting loads of top notch experience and more importantly is developing in the arguably the best league in the World. Sunderland will always be a bottom feeder in the BPL, just the way it is, but there is something to be said for a club that continues to remain in the first division of english soccer and even more so for the players who come away better for challenging to stay up on a day to day basis. This is about where DY should be playing his soccer considering he still a really young player, starting in the BPL at that!
