Report: Pochettino looking to sell 22-year-old Tottenham player DeAndre Yedlin

Tottenham Hotspur’s DeAndre Yedlin has been linked with a permanent switch to Sunderland.

According to the Northern Echo, Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is looking to sell right-back DeAndre Yedlin this summer while his stock remains high.

The report claims that with Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier ahead of him in the pecking order, the Spurs boss is keen to sell him with Sunderland interested in making his loan switch a permanent one.

Yedlin has spent the past nine months or so on loan at Sunderland, establishing himself as the club’s number one right-back and playing as many as 23 Premier League matches on Wearside.

Following their successful attempt at preserving their top-flight status, Black Cats boss Sam Allardyce has strongly suggested he will be looking to make Yedlin’s spell a permanent one at the Stadium of Light.

And it appears a potential deal could well happen, with a figure of £2 million being branded about.

Sunderland are short on right-backs, and bringing in Yedlin this summer on a permanent deal would make plenty of sense as the player has shown himself to be very capable at Premier League level.

The report says that Pochettino sees the 22-year-old as a talent for the future, but the Argentine boss will look to sell him now while his stock is high following his success in the North East.

Yedlin started Sunderland’s final 13 matches of the season, losing only two as the club avoided relegation.
