Liverpool linked defender speaks about his future: 'Focused' on current club

USA Supporters

DeAndre Yedlin has not given much away when speaking to the press about his future.

He was not even the starting right-back for the USA at the World Cup this summer but still it is DeAndre Yedlin who has come back to a furore over his potential future - with teams from across Europe reportedly scrambling for his signature.

Yedlin appeared on a number of occasions as a substitute for the flying full-back Fabian Johnson, and the Seattle Sounders clearly impressed during his fleeting appearances.

Soon after the USA had been knocked out of the competition by the much-fancied Belgians Yedlin found his name linked with several big clubs - including Liverpool.

The Reds were reportedly set to offer Yedlin a trial at the club. Meanwhile the Seattle Sounders star has also been linked with Serie A sides AS Roma and Genoa. In fact some reports in Italy even claimed that the deal was done - a breaking news story that now seems slightly premature.

Because Yedlin has now discussed his future with reporters in the States. Despite his head coach at Seattle admitting he could leave the right-back was not forthcoming over his future:

"I'm kind of letting my representatives handle that right now. They'll obviously get back to me on that information but for right now I'm just focused on Seattle."

But despite his apparent reluctance to discuss his future the MLS club appear willing to sell. They know they could cash in on Yedlin now, while the iron is hot, or risk losing him for a much lower price in a year or so.

With that in mind, and the desire of the club to allow Yedlin the opportunity to play in Europe - a deal is still far from off the cards.

The Italian sides remain the favourites, but if Liverpool were to come back in all signs point to a potential Yedlin sale.
