DeAndre Yedlin has praised Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce.

Sunderland loan ace DeAndre Yedlin has told the club's official website that working under Sam Allardyce has been a 'great experience' so far.

Yedlin, 22, made his name at the 2014 World Cup with the United States, impressing in three substitute appearances on the world's biggest stage.

Unsurprisingly, his promising performances triggered interest in his signature, and it was Tottenham Hotspur who landed him from Seattle Sounders, before Spurs allowed him to return to the MLS club on loan.

Yedlin featured just once up on returning to Spurs in January, and they again loaned him out on transfer deadline day back in September, this time allowing him to join Sunderland for the season.

With eight appearances to his name so far, Yedlin is earning valuable first-team experience at the Stadium of Light, and Tottenham should be delighted that he is now working under Sam Allardyce.

The veteran Premier League boss is known for his strong defensive work, and having Yedlin develop under his tutelage should make him a much more well-rounded defender.

Speaking to the club's official website ahead of this weekend's game against Watford, Yedlin was asked about what it's like to work under Allardyce - and the youngster claims it's been great for him so far.

"He's a very experienced manager, so there's a lot that I can learn from him and a lot that I still am learning from him, so it's been a great experience so far," said Yedlin.
