Benitez signing set for NUFC exit – but dream move unlikely without ‘huge pay cut’ – Report

According to MLS reporter Tom Bogert, DeAndre Yedlin’s time on Tyneside looks set to come to an end this summer.

It was reported back in May by The Athletic’s Paul Tenorio that Yedlin was ‘looking for a move’, while CBS Sports revealed just last month that he was set hold talks over his future ahead of a summer move.

Now, American writer Tom Bogert states the 27-year-old has held ‘no new contract talks’, despite the fact his current deal expires in less than 12 months time, indicating that he will be free to leave if a buyer emerges.

As far as a potential move is concerned, the report – which features on official ‘Major League Soccer site’ – states that Yedlin is  “very interested” in a return to the US and has already held a series of ‘informal talks’ with a host of MLS clubs.

That said, he reports that our likely asking price and the players current wage demands make any move back to the MLS unlikely as things stand – barring a ‘huge pay cut’ for the former Seattle Sounders star.

He’s been a decent servant and showed the odd signs of improvement under Rafa Benitez, however it feels like he’s reached the end of the road at NUFC.

Bruce’s decision to move back to a four-man defence appears to have placed him behind Manquillo and Krafth in the pecking order, so it may be best for all parties if we cash in while we can this summer.
