Tottenham Hotspur have announced that they have agreed a deal with Major League Soccer side Seattle Sounders FC for the signing of the highly rated 21-year-old right-back DeAndre Yedlin.
"I'm very excited to come to the Premier League and challenge myself against some of the best players in the world," said the American international after completing his switch to White Hart Lane.
Yedlin has signed a four-year contract with the North London club and has been sent back to the Sounders on loan for the remainder of the MLS season. He will return to Tottenham for the 2015/16 campaign.
Yedlin has made 45 appearances and scored one goal for the Sounders in the two years he has been at the club.
The youngster was also a member of the MLS All-Star team for 2013 and 2014 and was the first rookie to be a member since Michael Parkhurst in 2005.
The right-back has made seven appearances for the US men's international team, making his debut in a friendly against South Korea in early February.
World Cup experience
Yedlin was also part of Jurgen Klinsmann's World Cup squad for the 2014 competition in Brazil. He made his World Cup bow against Portugal, coming on as a late second-half substitute, and helped set up Sounders teammate Clint Dempsey's late goal which put the US up 2-1 in a game they eventually drew 2-2.
Yedlin also featured in the USA's final group game against Germany, which they lost 1-0.
