DeAndre Yedlin joined Sunderland on a season-long loan deal in the summer transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur-owned Sunderland defender DeAndre Yedlin has told the club’s official website that he is learning from playing alongside Younes Kaboul and John O’Shea.

The 22-year-old USA international right-back joined Sunderland on a season-long loan deal from Premier League rivals Tottenham in the summer transfer window.

French centre-back Kaboul also moved to the Black Cats from Tottenham in the summer - on a permanent contract - while defender O’Shea has been on the books of Sunderland since 2011 when he switched from Manchester United.

Yedlin seems to be enjoying himself working with the 29-year-old Kaboul and the 34-year-old O’Shea.

“It’s pretty interesting actually,” the youngster told Sunderland’s official website. “I played with Younes for a little bit last year, but I never got to play alongside him.

“It’s a great experience. They (Kaboul and O’Shea) are such experienced players. They help me so much, whether it be on the field or off the field.”

Yedlin has started Sunderland’s last four Premier League matches. In those four games, the American has created two chances, has a pass accuracy of 79%, and has won four headers, three dribbles and four tackles.

Sunderland are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with six points from 11 matches, two points behind 17th-place Bournemouth.
