Sunderland continue pursuit of DeAndre Yedlin move

DeAndre Yedlin had an impressive conclusion to the 2015-16 Premier League season while on loan with Sunderland. He must've won over some fans in the Black Cats's front office because they really want him back for the upcoming season.

It appears that in all likelihood Yedlin has no immediate future at Tottenham Hotspur. He's still No. 3 in the right back pecking order behind Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier, so another year away from White Hart Lane is likely needed.

There was talk as last season was ending that Sunderland were interested in bringing the American in on a permanent transfer, but according to a report from the Newcastle Evening Chronicle, Spurs have set Yedlin's price tag too high. They apparently want around £5-6 million for a transfer fee. Sunderland's interest remains, but they are unwilling to pay the price for a permanent move, making another loan a possibility.

The two sides have re-opened negotiations according to the same report. Sunderland seem to be the team most interested in Yedlin with very little talk of other clubs pursuing at the moment.

Would you want to see Yedlin back at Sunderland for another year?
