Tottenham signs Seattle's Yedlin to 4-year deal
TUKWILA, Washington (AP) Seattle Sounders and U.S. national team defender DeAndre Yedlin has signed a four-year deal with Tottenham but will remain in the United States through the remainder of the MLS season.
Both clubs announced the deal on Wednesday. Yedlin spent last weekend in London visiting with Tottenham officials and the sides were able to finalize the deal. Tottenham said Yedlin would join the club ahead of the 2015-16 season.
Yedlin burst onto the international scene with his performance for the U.S. at the World Cup. He was immediately linked with clubs throughout Europe, but Tottenham eventually became his destination. The 21-year-old was the first MLS homegrown player to appear in the World Cup and has been an MLS all-star selection each of his first two years in the league.
