Promoted Burnley want Spurs youngster

With all the news of players Spurs are watching we ought to mention teams that want our players. Real Madrid are said to be watching the progress of Dele Alli and Harry Kane, but then that is nothing unusual, top teams watch top players all the time.

Further down the scale is a player we bought but then loaned out after he didn't impress in training. He has speed but his technical ability was said to be well short of the standard we are looking for. The player in question is American DeAndre Yedlin.


Burnley have just been promoted as champions from the Championship. The came into the Premier League previously and said they would not bankrupt the club to try and survive. If they went down they would use the parachute payment to build a side to take them back up where they would then hope to solidify Premier League status with a bit more financial means behind them.

I have been knocked in some quarters for suggesting that it was a sound strategy to adopt and thus I'm delighted Burnley have returned as champions at the first attempt.  I'm all for building a football club and planning for the future so I wish them well next season.

They would like to take DeAndre Yedlin on loan and that seems like a move we should be encouraging. The more top flight football he gets the better he will become, which, as he needs developing, can only benefit us in the long run. In most situations loans for first team squad players are not beneficial, only when they are developing is it of any long term use to us. Yedlin fits that bill.

Sam Allardyce has been a breath of fresh air for Yedlin, of his 20 appearances for Sunderland on his season-long loan, 19 have come under the former Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United manager. Allardyce may well want to keep him now he has secured Premier League status for Sunderland for another season at the expense of arch-rivals Newcastle United.
