FC Midtjylland and fellow Danish Superliga club Aalborg BK are reportedly after the 22-year-old US international.
Danish champions FC Midtjylland and fellow Superliga side Aalborg BK are both trying to sign little-used Tottenham Hotspur right-back DeAndre Yedlin on loan before their transfer window closes, according to Tipsbladet.dk.
Yedlin 22, made a mid-season move to Tottenham from the Seattle Sounders last term after the two sides agreed a £2.5 million deal in August, but the two-time MLS All-Star went on to make just one 11-minute substitute appearance for Mauricio Pochettino’s side over the second half of the campaign.
Now competing with both Kyle Walker and summer signing Kieran Trippier for playing time, the US international finds himself facing questions over his immediate future at White Hart Lane after failing to even make the bench for the first four Premier League games of the season.
MLSSoccer.com claimed just last week that Tottenham were preparing to loan the 23-times capped defender out for the first half of the 2015-16 campaign as a result, with at least three Champions clubs, one team in Spain and several others across Europe all said to be after his signature.
Now Tipsbladet.dk’s report has added Midtjylland and Aalborg to the list of potential destinations, while noting that an unnamed Italian side is also in the discussion as the transfer deadline approaches.
On the face of it, the Danish Superliga might not seem like the ideal place for Yedlin to hone his skills over the coming months but, given how little action he is expected to see at White Hart Lane, there is no reason to be against the move if it offers him regular first-team minutes – or even Europa League football with Southampton conquerors Midtjylland.
After seeing his international form drop off over the past six months, USA head coach and ex-Spurs striker Jurgen Klinsmann has even said that he believes the versatile speedster would benefit from a loan, telling US Soccer this month: “There are some rumours of DeAndre Yedlin possibly going on loan for a year to another good club where he’ll get playing time, which is very important for him and for us that he’s playing week in and week.
“Maybe some other things will still happen because the deadline for the transfer window is August 31, so that will be interesting.”
Whether Yedlin’s prospective loan clubs want him in defence or on the wing, where he features for the States, remains to be seen but, regardless, it does look like the Seattle-native will soon be leaving north London for a short-term stint elsewhere.
