The USMNT speedster could be loaned out before the transfer deadline

When DeAndre Yedlin moved to Tottenham Hotspur in January many wondered how much actual playing time he'd get. One league appearance for the North London club later and it looks as if he's ready to go out on loan. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was never coy about his intentions of bringing Yedlin along slowly. Still many hoped that the talented American would break through.

With that not being the case and with several players standing in between Yedlin and first team action, it could be time to look elsewhere for minutes. According to Brian Sciaretta, a loan move looks very likely before the September 1st transfer deadline.

Even with the USMNT's struggles at right back, it appears as if Klinsmann views the speedster as a winger more than a fullback. The clubs interested in Yedlin seem to agree with the U.S. boss. Clubs from all over Europe are interested in acquiring the 22-year-old, including sides from the Premier League, La Liga, Eredivisie, and Bundesliga.

Yedlin played significant minutes at the Gold Cup but mostly as a substitute. In the third place match against Panama, he showed a flash of his potential with a very clever assist on Clint Dempsey's goal.

If he hopes to play a part in the huge upcoming Confederation's Cup playoff match against Mexico, he will need to find a club that can offer him steady playing time as soon as possible.
