Sunderland have completed the signing of defender DeAndre Yedlin on a season-long loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur.
He made his top flight debut in the Barclays Premier League for Spurs against Aston Villa in April but has found himself behind both Kyle Walker and Kieran Tripper in the pecking order at White Hart Lane.
Some regular first-team football will at least see if the early hype around Yedlin is to be lived up to.
Yedlin told the official Sunderland site: “I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to play for a club with such great history.
“I’ve heard fantastic things about Sunderland and the supporters from Claudio Reyna and Jozy Altidore. Claudio speaks very highly of Dick Advocaat from his time at Rangers.”
