Report: Newcastle willing to sell DeAndre Yedlin for £5m, interest from Europe and MLS

The right-back is up for sale by the Magpies.

Newcastle United are willing to sell defender DeAndre Yedlin during the transfer window if they receive a bid in the region of £5 million, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims that there is interest in the United States international from both Europe and the MLS, with Newcastle keen to do a deal.

Yedlin was a Rafa Benitez signing in 2016, signing from Premier League rivals Tottenham after an impressive loan spell at bitter rivals Sunderland (BBC).

The 27-year-old played just 20 times in all competitions last season, struggling with injuries to his groin, hip and hand throughout an injury-hit campaign.

In total the man with 62 international caps for the United States has played 116 times for the Magpies, scoring three goals and claiming 10 assists.

Yedlin played the full 90 minutes on Tuesday night as Newcastle knocked Blackburn Rovers out of the Carabao Cup at St James’ Park.

 

He wasn’t included in the squad for the game at West Ham last weekend, however, and is behind Javier Manquillo and Emil Krafth in the pecking order.

TBR View – Newcastle right to consider offloading Yedlin

The right-back has always tried his best when called upon and his speed down the right-hand side has been a useful asset to the team.

Under Steve Bruce, however, he has been used sparingly and offloading him does seem to make a lot of sense.

Newcastle would dearly like to add one or two more players to their ranks this summer and in order to do that, some might need to leave.

Yedlin is paid £30,000-a-week (Spotrac) at St James’ Park and although that doesn’t make him a particularly high earner, the funds could be used elsewhere on the squad.
