DeAndre Yedlin looks set to move to Europe. Exactly where is still unclear, and Tottenham Hotspur still appear to be the leaders, but all we know is that he is talking to a specific club. Seattle Sounders manager Sigi Schmid said that he was overseas today speaking with a club. Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer said the same, adding that he will be back with the team for the rest of the season.
Hanauer says Yedlin meeting with big club in Europe. Expected to return for Sunday and remain thru end of season "and potentially longer."— Don Ruiz (@donruiztnt) August 8, 2014
That Yedlin is nearing a move isn't a surprise. Reports yesterday had him on the verge of a move to Tottenham, which could still be the case. Spurs could be the team he is going to and being overseas could be more than just finalizing a transfer. It could also include a medical, which would make it official.
It's also not a surprise that the Sounders expect him back. Every rumor has him signing with a European club and being loaned back to Seattle for the remainder of the season. The Sounders probably wouldn't sell if they were going to lose him half way through a Supporters' Shield and MLS Cup run, and whoever is going to buy him doesn't realistically expect him to start right now so giving him more experience in MLS isn't a bad thing either.
