Tottenham's DeAndre Yedlin gets USA call-up; could feature on Wednesday

DeAndre Yedlin looks like being involved for the USA next week despite not playing a senior match since moving to Tottenham Hotspur.

According to a report from ESPN, Tottenham Hotspur right-back DeAndre Yedlin has been called up for the USA’s international friendly against Chile next week.

The 21-year-old arrived at White Hart Lane earlier this month, after he spent the first half of the campaign on loan at Seattle Sounders.

But he is yet to feature for Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team, instead playing 60 minutes for Spurs’ under-21 side as he looks to impress and hopefully push for a starting spot early in 2015.

The report claims Yedlin will join up with the 22 players who have been training with their country since January 12.

Until yesterday Tottenham remained in all four competitions, but they have since slipped out of the FA Cup after a 2-1 defeat to Leicester City.

They still have the League Cup and the Europa League to compete for, along with the Premier League, so Yedlin is likely to see game-time sooner rather than later. But for now he will have to make do with international matters, as he bids to usurp Kyle Walker as Tottenham’s number one right-back.
