DeAndre Yedlin has featured in Sunderland’s last four Premier League matches.

Tottenham Hotspur-owned Sunderland defender DeAndre Yedlin has told the club’s official website that he wants to be consistent and maintain his place in the starting lineup.

The 22-year-old right-back, who joined Sunderland on a season-long loan deal from Tottenham in the summer transfer window, has started the Black Cats’ last four Premier League matches.

In those four games, the USA international has created two chances, has a pass accuracy of 79%, and has won four headers, three dribbles and four tackles.

Yedlin wants to remain consistent and has told Sunderland’s official website: “I am just trying to stay consistent, play my game and help the team win, get good results however I can.”

The youngster’s performances have not been exactly great, but they have been encouraging and manager Sam Allardyce will want to keep him in his starting lineup.

The Black Cats are struggling for form and for points at the moment, and are in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

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.
