Newcastle United defender DeAndre Yedlin has been linked with a move away from the club, with a Major League Soccer club interested in him.
SBI Soccer have linked Yedlin with a move back to the MLS despite potential interest from European clubs as well.
Unknown club wants Yedlin
The report from SBI Soccer claims that an unidentified Eastern Conference team from the MLS has made a long-term offer for the Newcastle right-back. It is an offer that the former Tottenham man is currently considering. The report states that the identity of the club is currently unknown. Yedlin is currently valued at £4.50m.
Can Newcastle move on from Yedlin?
The article states that Yedlin’s recent form has ‘boosted’ his profile in the market and European clubs could potentially be interested in the American defender too. If European clubs do make an offer for Yedlin, it could mean that he could head to that European team. His current deal at St. James’ Park runs out in the summer of 2021 and he could be free to discuss terms with another club in the current window ahead of a potential free transfer in the summer.
Losing Yedlin is no disaster for Newcastle
In the current campaign, Yedlin has made five Premier League appearances for the Magpies and even picked up a very good rating in their game against Liverpool recently. His rating against Leicester was pretty disappointing and overall, the 27-year-old has been rated at 6.34 (as per Whoscored).
This suggests that Yedlin hasn’t been an exceptional player this season. Apart from him, Steve Bruce has two other options for the right-back spot – Emil Krafth and Javier Manquillo. Because of that, making some funds back from Yedlin may be the best course of action for the club .
