DeAndre Yedlin's loan spell with Sunderland this season got off to a rocky start. Around February it all started to turn around for the young American as he found his way back into the Black Cat's starting lineup and never relinquished his spot.

According to The Mirror, Sunderland are ready to make an offer to Tottenham Hotspur, the club that owns Yedlin, for a permanent transfer for the 22-year-old.

The offer would be for around $2.9 Million according to the report, which is marginally less than the $3.2 Million that Spurs paid the Seattle Sounders for the fullback.

Yedlin was a staple in the Sunderland side that fought hard to avoid relegation at the end of this Premier League season. It was a valuable learning experience for him.

The current right back situation at Spurs seems logjammed with Kyle Walker cemented in as the starter and Kieran Trippier, a proven Premier League fullback in his own right, there to back him up.

The time could be right for Yedlin to make a permanent move elsewhere. Sunderland are apparently impressed with him and have confidence in his abilities, which is an encouraging aspect if he does in fact make that full-time switch to the Stadium of Light.
