Fresh from their great escape in the nervy Premier League finish, Sunderland are already making transfer plans in order to make their squad more competitive next season.
According to Mirror, the Balck Cats are preparing to make an offer to Tottenham Hotspur in order to turn DeAndre Yedlin’s loan deal into a permanent move during the summer transfer window.
Sam Allardyce is willing to pay £2 million for the 22-year-old American international, who lost his place in the pecking order with the Spurs, falling behind Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier before he decided to make a January move to Sunderland.
Yedlin’s loan spell got off to a patchy start, but the young USA international was quick to turn his fortunes around and earn his place in the starting line-up and becoming one of the key members in Sam Allardyce’s team.
Sunderland have been impressed with Yedlin’s performances and are keen to make a full-time switch for the defender who made 21 Premier League appearances.
DeAndre Yedlin is keen to stay at the Stadium of Light, reports claim, and both parties are eager to conclude a deal at the beginning of the transfer market.
