DeAndre Yedlin admits his Tottenham debut has been 'overshadowed' by defeat

The American finally made his debut for Tottenham this afternoon.

DeAndre Yedlin had an excellent World Cup with the USA in the summer that saw him linked with a move abroad. 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 and agreed he could remain at Seattle until the end of the MLS season. He joined up with the club at the start of this year but as of yet has still not played for the Spurs first-team.

Until today.

He came on in the 79th minute for his debut today, replacing the terrible Vlad Chiriches at right-back.

In 11 minutes he did not have enough time to influence the game, however he was pleased to make his debut.

Unfortunately Tottenham lost the game to Aston Villa at White Hart Lane, which was certainly a dampener on his otherwise memorable day.

He told the official Tottenham website today, as reported on the club's official Twitter account:

He also went on to discuss how he hoped to play more games this season and with Kyle Walker now suffering with a foot injury he might just get the chance to fulfill his wish toward the end of the current campaign.
