Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Spurs legend produces exciting assessment of Yedlin

DeAndre Yedlin

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

USA head coach and Tottenham legend Jurgen Klinsmann has been quoted by Goal explaining why DeAndre Yedlin is already at the right club.

The American right-back settled at the club having moved from Seattle in the MLS earlier this season.

He’s yet to get a chance under Mauricio Pochettino, but Klinsmann feels he’s in the right place.

“He’s in the right spot because he needs to grow. He will grow eventually. Even if he’s not playing right now, he will grow,” said Klinsmann.

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill has revealed that Tottenham striker Harry Kane was able but not willing to play for the Irish, as reported by the Irish Times.

Kane is widely expected to be called into the next England senior squad by Roy Hodgson due to his prolific form for Spurs this season.

He’s also been tipped to feature for the England under-21 side in the under-21 Euros this summer, but O’Neill says he was fighting a lost cause to get him to change his mind.

“I was talking to somebody about this and we were saying that Harry himself always wanted to play for England. It was as simple as that,” he said.

The Daily Star has reported that England boss Roy Hodgson has made his mind up that the forward will feature in the next senior squad.

The paper reports that Hodgson has passed up the chance to watch Kane in action this weekend, having already made the decision.

England play their next matches before the end of this month.
