MLS reacts on Twitter to Yedlin's Tottenham move: 'hope there's a proper barber there'

White Hart Lane 5

Various stateside fans and MLS figures took to Twitter to give their take on DeAndre Yedlin's much-anticipated move from the Seattle Sounders to Tottenham Hotspur.

USA international DeAndre Yedlin finally completed his anticipated move to Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening, after a week of intense speculation which had MLS circles abuzz.

Signing a four-year contract at White Hart Lane, the 21-year-old is set to remain with the Seattle Sounders through the 2014 season, before the two sides decide whether he will make the switch to England in the winter or prior to the 2015-16 campaign.

One of the league’s top-rated talents, the right-back has been on a meteoric rise since signing a homegrown deal with his local side at the start of 2013, going from the college level to a two-time All-Star and World Cup standout after just one full professional season.

While the wider world first became aware of the promising speedster in Brazil this summer, MLS fans have been growing accustomed to his exciting outings over the past 18 months, but his rapid progress has been seen as a surprise to even the most dedicated supporters.

It remains a landmark event for the league when domestic talent earns a big move abroad, and various stateside individuals took to Twitter following the announcement to express their opinion on the reported $4 million switch.
