US star Yedlin signs with Spurs

United States international defender DeAndre Yedlin has signed a four-year contract with Tottenham Hotspur, but will remain with Seattle Sounders until next season, the Premier League club said today.

The 21-year-old impressed during the recent World Cup in Brazil, having made his senior international debut in February.

"I'm very excited to join this club and I'm excited that Iwill be able to challenge myself against the best players in the world," Yedlin said.

He is the fourth player signed by Tottenham during the transfer window, the others being Ben Davies and Michel Vorm from Swansea City and Eric Dier from Sporting Lisbon.
