Newcastle United and Aston Villa have both submitted £5 million bids for Spurs defender DeAndre Yedlin, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims the Magpies want a replacement for Daryl Janmaat while Villa want to bring in competition for Alan Hutton.

Yedlin spent last season on loan at Sunderland and impressed but has seemingly not done enough to convince Mauricio Pochettino to keep him at White Hart Lane.

Spurs have one of the league’s best right-backs in Kyle Walker at their disposal, while Kieran Trippier has proved an able deputy in his absence.

The Lilywhites are unlikely to finish the transfer window with three senior right-backs on their books and so Yedlin’s exit appears to be inevitable.

It is unclear whether he will be allowed to leave on another loan or on a permanent basis, but the quoted £5 million offered would be a tidy return on the £2.5 million paid for the American (according to the Guardian) back in 2014.
