DeAndre Yedlin could make first Tottenham appearance this evening for under-21s

The USA right-back has arrived permanently from Seatle Sounders this week.

This summer the USA were one of the surprise packages of the World Cup in Brazil. Many a neutral enjoyed watching the side give it their best in Brazil, before Romelu Lukaku sent them packing in the second round.

One player who certainly caught the eye was right-back De Andre Yedlin.

The 21-year-old right-back shone for the USA despite not being a regular starter for Jurgen Klinsmann's side. His blistering pace was just one of the attributes that attracted plenty of teams to his signature.

In the summer that saw him linked with the likes of Italian sides Genoa and AS Roma but it was Tottenham Hotspur who agreed a deal with his MLS side Seattle Sounders for his services.

Tottenham agreed a deal for the player in August, for an undisclosed fee, and agreed he could remain at Seattle until the end of the MLS season.

This week he finally began training for Tottenham, as he looks to earn a place in the first-team at White Hart Lane.

Of course he is going to take some time to get fit and ready for the club, so an appearance against Crystal Palace tomorrow evening seemed unlikely.

However he will make his Tottenham debut, of sorts, this evening. The club have confirmed on their official Twitter account that Yedlin is in the squad for this evening's under-21 game against West Ham.

So the first opportunity to see Yedlin in a Tottenham shirt will come tonight, the first appearance of many.
