Tottenham boost as DeAndre Yedlin receives a work permit

White Hart Lane 3

DeAndre Yedlin is now reportedly clear to move to Tottenham Hotspur next month after receiving a work permit.

Tottenham Hotspur’s summer signing DeAndre Yedlin has reportedly been granted a work permit that means he will not have to pursue a Latvian passport in order to feature for Spurs.

The USA international signed for Tottenham for a reported fee of £2.5million, following some impressive displays at the World Cup. But for now he remains on loan at the MLS club.

With Yedlin tipped to move to White Hart Lane in January it had been claimed he would need the Latvian passport he could apply for due to his grandmother’s heritage. But the Mirror is now reporting that he has received a Governing Body Endorsement.

The UK Border Agency has reportedly okayed the paperwork, meaning he looks set to feature for Tottenham as early as next month.

The 21-year-old right-back will offer effective cover for the recently recovered Kyle Walker and Spurs fans will be hoping he can replicate the form he showed in Brazil.

Yedlin has made 69 appearances for Seattle Sounders so far, scoring three goals and providing six assists in that time.
