Report: Newcastle finalizing transfer for Yedlin (UPDATED)


Another round of rumors are swirling around the Deandre Yedlin.

The Daily Mail reported that both Newcastle United and Aston Villa of the English Football Championship have placed bids of £5 million for the Tottenham fullback, who is seeking regular first team football this season.

(UPDATE: According to Goal USA, Yedlin’s move to Newcastle is nearing completion. The defender is reportedly set to join the Championship club on a permanent transfer worth £5 million and was spotted at a local airport on Tuesday ahead of a medical.)

Given the deep depth chart of Tottenham at right back and following last year’s successful loan spell at Sunderland, a move seems inevitable for the U.S. Men’s National Team starter, but his destination has remained unknown to this point.

Newcastle United are reportedly gearing up for the expected departure of fullback Daryl Janmaat, targeted by both West Ham and Napoli.

Prior to Tuesday’s developments, it was also reported that both Hull City, Sunderland and Derby were interested in the services of Yedlin.

Which destination do you think would be best for Yedlin? How will he fare at Newcastle?
