With Tottenham Hotspur on the verge of completing the signing of right back Kieran Trippier from Burnley, they might not have room for DeAndre Yedlin next season. The pacey USMNT winger/fullback could be headed to newly-promoted Norwich City on loan according to John Percy of the Daily Telegraph:

Yedlin signed with Spurs last Summer after a breakout performance at the 2014 World Cup. The American finished out the 2014 season with the Seattle Sounders before finally heading to North London in January. Yedlin only appeared in one game for Spurs last season, a substitute appearance against Aston Villa in mid-April.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino felt he needed to give the youngster time to adjust to life in England and the Premier League's style of play before throwing him into the fire.

A season on loan with a smaller Premier League side with lower expectations could be just what Yedlin needs to improve. Spending another season on the bench and in the reserves doesn't do him, Spurs, or the USMNT any good whatsoever.
