DeAndre Yedlin set to make Newcastle switch

Newcastle set to sign Tottenham right-back DeAndre Yedlin – Sky sources

Newcastle are set to sign Tottenham right-back DeAndre Yedlin, according to Sky sources.

The 23-year-old is in Newcastle for a medical ahead of a permanent move away from White Hart Lane, after a deal was agreed between the clubs.

Yedlin spent last season on loan at the Magpies’ rivals Sunderland, where he made 25 appearances in all competitions.

The USA international looks set to be the fifth player to move from the Premier League to Newcastle this summer, following the arrivals of Dwight Gayle (Crystal Palace), Matt Ritchie (Bournemouth), Isaac Hayden (Arsenal) and Mo Diame (Hull).

Yedlin signed for Spurs from Seattle Sounders two summers ago but continued to play for the Major League Soccer club until January 2015, and was dubbed one for the future after receiving a work permit.

But he has not been able to break into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans and is behind Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier for a spot at right-back.

Pochettino is also keen to bring through promising youngster Kyle Walker-Peters, whom he took on the pre-season tour of Australia.
