Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino admits defender DeAndre Yedlin could leave the club on loan this summer.

The USA right-back signed for Spurs in August 2014 but remained with the Seattle Sounders until January this year.

Arriving six months earlier than planned, the 22-year-old made his solitary Premier League appearance in April against Aston Villa.

Strong competition

With Kyle Walker ahead of Yedlin in the pecking order and Kieran Trippier arriving to compete for a starting spot at White Hart Lane, it appears the American is surplus to requirements in the immediate future.

And, speaking after his side's 2-1 defeat to the MLS all-stars on Wednesday night, Pochettino revealed he's unsure whether the 23-cap international will remain with his squad this season or leave on loan. The Argentine is open to the player making a temporary exit.

"We need to see him and speak with him and maybe he stays with us the next season, maybe no," the Spurs boss told reporters, according to

Decision time

"He was in the Gold Cup and he met us here in Denver. He needs time to show his quality and we'll decide in the next few weeks."

Yedlin himself is open to a spell away from north London, with the defender claiming he's 'comfortable' with whatever decision the club makes.

Whatever happens, he'll give his best to the cause as a professional trying to make a name for himself in the game in Europe.

"I’m feeling comfortable wherever I go. Whether it be with Tottenham Hotspur, whether that be a loan, it doesn't matter," he said. "That’s one of the things you have to deal with as a pro. Wherever I'll go, I'll give it my best effort."

Loan options

The Daily Mirror reported last month that Bolton were interested in bringing the player to the Reebok Stadium, as Neil Lennon looks to shape his squad ahead of a crack at promotion from the Championship.

Whilst those reports have gone quiet in recent weeks, the comments from Pochettino will give hope to both the Trotters and any other interested party.
