DeAndre Yedlin’s first season with Newcastle ended with a return to the Premier League and a title in hand.
Newcastle defeated Barnsley, 3-0, on Sunday to claim this season’s Championship title. The club had already sealed a return to the Premier League and Sunday’s win saw the club finish top of the table, edging Brighton & Hove Albion by one point.
“We didn’t know what would happen with Brighton at Villa,” Yedlin said, according to the Newcastle Chronicle. “But fortunately we got a good result here and there was a good result for Aston Villa.We got what we deserved.”
Newcastle opened the scoring in the 23rd minute through Ayoze Perez as Yedlin provided the assist before Chancel Mbemba added the team’s second in the 59th minute. A 90th minute finish from Dwight Gayle all but locked up the title as Brighton drew Aston Villa, 1-1, in their final match.
Yedlin played all 90 minutes in the win in what was his 27th league appearance of the season.
