Tottenham defender DeAndre Yedlin has shared his thoughts on a move to Sunderland, in a Q & A session with former club Seattle Sounders.

The feature – hosted on the MLS side’s official website – saw the 23-year old deal with a number of queries, one of which was his thoughts on the rumours that the Black Cats could look to sign him permanently this summer.

“I think it’s awesome that that’s floating around but I haven’t heard anything on a deal or anything like that so it’s all kind of up in the air right now,” said the USA international.

“I’m just waiting to see what happens and trying to enjoy it. I feel blessed to be able to do what I love everyday so I just try to make the best out of every situation and keep pushing.”

Yedlin moved to the Stadium of Light on a season-long loan last term and became a crucial member of Sam Allardyce’s squad as they fought to avoid relegation.

They did so successfully, and the manner of the American’s performances over the course of the campaign has led many fans to urge the club to sign him outright.

It would appear his prospects at Spurs aren’t too great, with Kyle Walker returning to brilliant best last season and Kieran Trippier offering a strong back-up option.

Yedlin to Sunderland is a deal which seems to make sense for all parties involved and there’s every chance the speedy full-back is draped in the red, white and black of Sunderland come August 13th.
