Yedlin played on loan for Sunderland from Premier League rivals Tottenham during the 2015-16 season.
The 22-year-old right-back, who can also play as a wide midfielder, did relatively well during his loan spell at the Black Cats.

The performances of Yedlin at Sunderland this past season, especially under manager Sam Allardyce, were quite encouraging. The youngster created 12 chances in 23 Premier League appearances for the Black Cats.
The former Sounders defender had a pass accuracy of 68% and a shot accuracy of 25%, and won 24 headers, 22 dribbles and 29 tackles.
According to a recent report in The Northern Echo, Tottenham are willing to sell Yedlin to Sunderland in the summer transfer window, with the Black Cats ready to bid around £2m for the defender.
Perhaps it would be wise of Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino to retain faith in Yedlin and see how he does next season before making a decision on his future.
