Report: Ex-Toon full-back DeAndre Yedlin joins Inter Miami in the MLS

After being released by Galatasaray, ex-Newcastle United full-back DeAndre Yedlin has joined Inter Miami in the MLS. There were talks of him going to Hull City according to The Athletic but instead chose a move back to his home country.

Inter Miami broke the news on their club website, confirming the four-year deal. Currently, the MLS side is being managed by former England Women’s team coach Phil Neville. Also, part of the stakes of the club are owned by Premier League legend David Beckham.

Yedlin last played in the MLS back when he was at Seattle Sounders. He joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2015 and spent a season on loan at Sunderland. In 2016 he joined the Magpies for an undisclosed fee per Sky Sports.

Hopefully Yedlin can endure a better spell back home than he did in Turkey

The American right-back went to Galatasaray in February 2021. However, after only a year Yedlin agreed to terminate his contract with the Turkish side.

But he’s back in America, so hopefully he can find his feet with Inter Miami. Yedlin was always a likeable character on Tyneside. He very often had a smile on his face and had some really cool hairstyles over the years.

He was rapid too. He netted the opening goal against Man City in a 2-1 defeat back in 2018, which saw him impressively make a run across the pitch.

But he eventually became third choice right-back for the Toon Army, behind Javier Manquillo and Emil Krafth. With his experience abroad and at a national level, Yedlin could be a starter for Miami.

I’m sure most Newcastle fans will wish the best for Yedlin. He was a likeable guy and did a job for a few years, especially in the promotion campaign in 2016/17.

If Yedlin is to find his feet somewhere, it’s highly likely it will be in his homeland. He can use his experience from playing in Europe and become a valuable asset for Inter Miami.
