Many Newcastle United fans have been discussing a news update about DeAndre Yedlin that recently emerged on social media.

Journalist Lee Ryder recently wrote an article for the Chronicle, saying that Yedlin is currently a target for Turkish side Trabzonspor, who are looking to sign him on a free transfer as the American right-back’s current contract at Newcastle runs out at the end of the current season.

Should Newcastle sell Yedlin?





Yedlin’s potential move away from St. James’ Park could see Newcastle free up space for a loan move for another right-back. He has also been linked with German clubs and clubs in MLS.

This update about Yedlin was relayed on Twitter by the Chronicle. It caught the attention of many Newcastle fans, who began talking about the American.

What did Newcastle fans make of this update about DeAndre Yedlin?

Can’t tackle, can’t cross, poor ball control, poor awareness, poor fitness record…under this regime those things mean you fit in perfectly but let’s hope he’s released.

Easy one to get us underway, in what month during 2019 was Steve Bruce appointed Newcastle manager?

Since joining the Magpies, Yedlin has made 121 appearances in all competitions for the club while scoring three goals and picking up 11 assists as well (as per Transfermarkt).

Some other Newcastle fans also talked about the American’s future at St. James’ Park.
