Tottenham’s DeAndre Yedlin enjoying loan spell with Sunderland

The defender is keen to build on the positives from Sunderland's 6-2 loss to Everton.

Speaking to Sunderland’s official website, on loan Tottenham Hotspur defender DeAndre Yedlin says he is enjoying his loan spell at the Stadium of Light.

The defender moved to Wearside on a season-long agreement over the summer, with it unlikely that he would see much game time at White Hart Lane ahead of Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier.

He broke into Black Cats' first-team for a Capital One Cup clash against Manchester City and has been a regular in the side ever since, with both Dick Advocaat and now Sam Allardyce trusting him in the right-back position.

And he says the experience so far has been great, despite having to deal with a change in manager so early in the campaign.

“It’s been good,” Yedlin told safc.com

“There’s been a coaching change which is something I’ve never dealt with before, but it’s been great and the guys are great. I’m just trying to stay consistent and play my game to help the team win or at least get good results."

The defender was also keen to highlight the positives for the side despite their heavy 6-2 loss to Everton last weekend.

The Black Cats were thoroughly outclassed at Goodison Park, as the home side ran riot, with the defence in particular struggling against the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Arouna Kone, with the latter leaving with a hat-trick.

They were unfortunate, though, having hit the post twice in the opening 20 minutes, and Yedlin says they will take those positives and look to build on them.

“It wasn’t the result we wanted [against] Everton and we obviously have to look at the negatives,” he added.

“But you also have to take the positives which are that we hit the post twice in the opening 20 minutes and we attacked very well.

"We will take the negatives and fix them and build on the positives.”
