According to Football Insider, Southampton have opened talks to sign Newcastle right-back DeAndre Yedlin.
The Saints are already on the verge of signing Theo Walcott on a short-term basis, and now they are eyeing a loan move for the USA international.
The report adds that the Magpies have given the green light for him to make the switch to St. Mary’s Stadium.
Yedlin has failed to make a single appearance for Steve Bruce’s side this season in the Premier League, whilst he appeared just 16 times last term as well. Prior to that, though, he was a regular, playing 90 times across three league campaigns.
He has 62 caps for his country, and also played in the top tier with Sunderland and Tottenham – albeit fleetingly. This is a man who has a whole host of experience at this level, and at 27 years old, you would not say that his best years are behind him.
Would you like to sign Yedlin on loan?
With this being a temporary deal, this is a cheap option for Ralph Hasenhuttl and co. The Saints will be hoping that they can get this deal over the line, as it provides competition and cover for Kyle Walker-Peters without the cost of a permanent move.
