DeAndre Yedlin open to Sunderland stay amid reports of £2m bid
Tottenham's DeAndre Yedlin has not ruled out a return to Sunderland next season and says he is hoping to impress at this summer's Copa America in the hope of resolving his future.
Yedlin joined Spurs from Major League Soccer outfit Seattle Sounders in January 2015, but made just one appearance before joining Sunderland on a season-long loan in the summer.
After a mixed start, the 22-year-old made the right-back spot his own under Sam Allardyce, making 24 appearances, including 21 league starts, as the Black Cats beat the drop.
Spurs are well-stocked at right-back with Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier, and the USMNT star, who is back in the States for this summer's Copa America, admits he is keeping his options open amid reports of a £2 million bid from Sunderland.
"It's definitely a door I would not close. I would not mind going back [to Sunderland]," Yedlin told Goal.com. "I had a great time there.
"I'm keeping all doors open, I don't want to shut any right now. Any opportunity that is offered to me is a big opportunity. When you're dealing with the Premier League, it's still unbelievable to think that I'm playing in the Premier League.
"I don't want to close any doors right now," he continued. "I'll just keep my head down and perform at Copa America. Obviously if I can have a good tournament here it'll impress a lot more people."
Yedlin says the example of Premier League Golden Boot-winner Harry Kane gives him hope that he can still make it at White Hart Lane, however.
"Sometimes that's all you need, is a year of playing, that little bit of confidence," he added. "You look at Harry Kane, two years ago coming back from loan and playing, he comes back to Tottenham and absolutely kills it and is now England's No. 1 striker.
"Confidence is a funny thing, and sometimes that's all you need is just that little bit to elevate you to the next level."
