DeAndre Yedlin looks likely to exit Newcastle United as Tom Bogert has claimed on his Twitter page that he has had informal talks with other clubs in the MLS.
As per the journalist, there have not yet been any new talks over the player’s current deal at the Tyneside club, which expires in just a year.
The MLS is apparently at the top of his list but a move is unlikely to happen right at this point in time because of worries over how big his potential transfer fee and contract would be, as he would have to be a Designated Player (DP).
It would make him only the second DP full-back in the American league after Ali Adnan, and bar a huge pay cut, a possible exit is not imminent right now, but it looks to be heading that way.
Some Yedlin context:
He's interested in an MLS return, but again, not likely at the moment. Barring a huge pay cut, contract would make him a DP. Only one DP fullback in the league right now (Ali Adnan).
Obviously fluid right now, no exit is imminent but heading that way

Indeed, the 27-year old had been limited to just 20 games in all competitions in the 2019/20 season, scoring one goal, according to Transfermarkt.
Yedlin also has had a history of injury woes during his time at St. James’ Park, so perhaps it would be wise to let him go.
There have also been previous reports linking the American international with a move away from the North East, so perhaps his fate has already been sealed.
Should Newcastle sell Yedlin?
Nevertheless, the Magpies will be hoping to get as much money as possible for the right-back if he does leave, and with Javier Manquillo and Emil Krafth as options already in that role, perhaps it would not be a bad idea to let Yedlin go.
Geordies, would you keep Yedlin? Comment below!
