£2m price difference


As reported previously Sunderland want a fee of around £3-million (€3.57m - AUS$5.31m - US$3.98m) for 22-year-old Tottenham Hotspur right-back DeAndre Yedlin while Tottenham are thought to want in excess of £5-million (€5.96m - AUS$8.85m - US$6.63m) from a fee and performance related add-ons.

His uncle, Dylan Walton-Yedlin, told the Seattle Times before the Copa America quarter-final that the youngster had struggled in London and only realised what he had to do when he was dropped by Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce.

"I think he’ll even tell you that he got caught up in the bright lights of London a little bit. I think the move to Sunderland was good for him. For the first time in his life, he really knew that everything he was going to get out of soccer was the direct result of what he put into soccer."

Jurgen Klinsmann has noticed an improvement in Yedlin over the last two years, he now knows how to use his speed and has a greater grasp of how to defend.

“It’s pretty cool to see DeAndre’s path over the last two years. He’s becoming more mature, he’s become even stronger, more confident, and also on the tactical side of the game he’s learned a lot. 
“He now knows how to read the game better, especially behind him when he’s going forward. He reads forwards better in one-on-one situations, so his learning curve his huge. He’s played a tremendous Copa America.”
