Another English club has moseyed its way into the DeAndre Yedlin transfer saga. Aston Villa are considering a bid in the region of £3 million for the United States international according to The Telegraph in England.

Villa are a club many American soccer fans know well from Brad Guzan’s long tenure manning the posts. Other USMNT players such as Michael Bradley and Eric Lichaj also have a history with them as well.

They were relegated from the Premier League last season after finishing very bottom of the table. They are the second English Championship side to show interest in Yedlin, joining Derby County, who reportedly made an offer.

As you know by now, Yedlin is on the outside looking in at Tottenham after being left out of the match day squad on opening day against Everton. A move away from White Hart Lane looks inevitable for the 23-year-old. Now it’s just a matter of which club wins out in the bidding process.

Sunderland and Hull City are the two Premier League clubs supposedly interested in acquiring him right now. You’d have to think they have the upper-hand, considering their top flight status. Would Yedlin drop a division to receive playing time? It remains to be seen.

What do you think? Should he go to the Championship and play every week?
