DeAndre Yedlin says that he will certainly be returning back to Seattle Sounders, where it all began for him as a professional footballer.Yedlin was the first homegrown player for Seattle and he was recently in conversation with club icon Steve Zakuani. At 26 years old,Yedlin is at the peak of his career and he is currently playing for Newcastle United after making the switch in 2016. Even though he has spent most of his playing career with Seattle, he has already represented Newcastle in more than 100 games. An established Premier League player now,Yedlin is in the process of capitalising on Newcastle’s newfound wealth following a takeover by Saudi royals.

Even then, the right back is confident of coming back to the MLS and finishing his career with Seattle. After playing for the likes of Northwest Nationals and Crossfire Premier his youth days,Yedlin made the switch to Seattle in 2010 and he was soon limited to the first-team in 2013. Even though he spent only two seasons with the club before moving onto the likes of Tottenham and Sunderland,Yedlin has not forgotten his roots. The player has a contract with Newcastle only until the summer of 2021 and the latest takeover means that he faces an uncertain future at Tyneside.

One-hundred percent [I will return to Seattle]. That’s been my plan all along, to hopefully finish where I started. I think that would make for a pretty good career. I remember when I left, [head coach Brian Schmetzer] told me, ‘You’re welcome back at any time.’ So, I’m [going to] hold him to that,” said Yedlin. The defender has been able to enjoy a lot of success with his pace providing all the answers in the Premier League. Even if he comes back after his 30s,Yedlin would still dominate.
