ESPN links DeAndre Yedlin to Tottenham Hotspur

A tweet from ESPN’s Taylor Twellman on Wednesday says Tottenham has shown interest in DeAndre Yedlin, who says “nothing is really finalized yet.”

Just as the DeAndre Yedlin rumor mill finally seemed to be slowing, a Wednesday morning tweet from ESPN’s Taylor Twellman set it spinning wildly again.

This time, the speculation involved Tottenham Hotspur, a club that finished sixth in the English Premier League last season.

“Hearing Spurs have jumped ahead of everyone else in Yedlin sweepstakes. He’d stay in Seattle for 2014 before joining Tottenham,” read a tweet from Twellman.

Said Yedlin after the MLS All-Star Game: “Nothing is really finalized yet. I’m waiting, letting my agency handle it.”

A potential complication was the closure of the Major League Soccer transfer deadline Wednesday at 2 p.m. PST.

Unless Tottenham and Seattle agreed to terms before the deadline, the 21-year-old Yedlin would have to join Spurs immediately and he could not be loaned back to the Sounders for the rest of the year.

Messages left with Sounders part owner and general manager Adrian Hanauer, and Yedlin’s agent, Chris Megaloudis, were not immediately answered.
