Former Tottenham defender DeAndre Yedlin has joined Inter Miami on a contract until 2025 with an option to extend until 2026. 

Yedlin, 28, links up with the MLS outfit after having his contract with Turkish side Galatasary terminated by mutual consent at the end of January (ESPN). 

He joins a host of recognisable names at the David Beckham-owned side, including Gonzalo Higuain, Blaise Matuidi and Kieran Gibbs. 

Yedlin was initially prised out of the USA by Tottenham in 2015 who signed him from Seattle Sounders in a deal worth around £2.5 million (The Guardian). 

The right-back was loaned out to Sunderland in September that year, before eventually leaving Spurs permanently for Newcastle in August 2016. 

After making 125 appearances for the Magpies (Transfermarkt) and helping them seal promotion to the Premier League, Yedlin joined Galatasaray on a two-and-a-half-year deal. 

However, he took up the option to end his contract early last month in order to secure a return back to MLS after a seven-year absence. 

Spurs Web Opinion

Yedlin was one of the strangest signings in recent years from Spurs, as it just simply didn’t come close to working out. He managed to form a half-decent career for himself in Europe, though, but you feel he will be better off back at an MLS side.
