The Daily Mirror are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur are attempting bring forward DeAndre Yedlin’s arrival to the club to January.
The United States international was expected to remain at Seattle Sounders until the summer, but the right-back has revealed that he is trying to secure a Latvian passport to be able to fast-track his arrival.
Tottenham’s first-choice right-back, Kyle Walker is yet to play this season after undergoing surgery during the summer. Erik Dier has filled in well on the flank when asked to do so, while Kyle Naughton is set for an extended spell on the sidelines with ligament damage.
Yedlin told the press: “A big deciding factor is my passport, I’m working on getting a Latvian passport. If that goes through,then January is definitely very possible. It’s either June or January.
“I always knew I had that sort of background. I never really paid attention to it, but it’s become useful now and I’m going to take advantage of it.
“I could have signed for Roma, I just felt that England fit my playing style better and Tottenham was a good situation for me.
“I’m an attacking full back. They have Kyle Walker and I’m excited to learn from him, and learn from the other full-backs and from coach Mauricio Pochettino, who’s great with young players.”
