VIDEO: New Spurs signing Yedlin gets excited about main hobby

White Hart Lane 6

New Tottenham Hotspur signing DeAndre Yedlin has provided an insight into what he does in his free time.

New Tottenham Hotspur star DeAndre Yedlin has revealed what he gets up to in his free time.

The 21-year-old defender posted a video of himself on Instagram getting rather excited after buying video game ‘Smash Bros’.

FIFA is ironically the weapon of choice for many professional footballers when it comes to their choice of video games, perhaps for the ego side of seeing themselves in action or perhaps to prove they’re just as good in virtual life.

However, Yedlin prefers the mash up of various fighting titles from Nintendo.

Spurs announced in mid-August that they’d agreed to sign Yedlin from Seattle Sounders on a four-year deal with the American due to link up with the North London side either this winter or next summer.

He’s enjoyed a rapidly developing reputation as one of the quickest and most talented young defenders currently playing in the MLS and it’s encouraging to see that he has a lighter side in light of the pressure and new found fame.
