After failing to make an appearance for Tottenham over the weekend, rumors continued to flourish suggesting that United States international DeAndre Yedlin could very well be on his way out of North London.

According to reports from the Daily Mail, newly promoted Premier League side Hull City and Championship club Derby County are interested in acquiring the former Seattle Sounders product. The report further addressed that both clubs have offered a fee in the region of £3.5 million or $4.5 million; a fair amount for the United States International.

DeAndre Yedlin, 23, has failed to make a lasting impression on Tottenham Hotspur‘s manager Mauricio Pochettino, which resulted in a season-long loan with fellow Premier League club Sunderland AFC. While playing for the Blackcats, Yedlin flourished under newly-named England manager Sam Allardyce, who helped groom the Seattle native both professionally and tactically.

While at Sunderland, Yedlin appeared in 23 matches, registering a single assist. Upon returning to Spurs, it was believed that the 23-year-old defender would not remain with the side, making him a prime target on the transfer market.
