Tottenham have confirmed that DeAndre Yedlin will leave the club on loan to Sunderland for the remainder of the season.
American Yedlin joined Tottenham at the beginning of the year from the Seattle Sounders but despite showing promise for the under-21 side he has had little impact on the senior line-up thus far.
Mauricio Pochettino does not see him in his plans for the season ahead and the experience he will gain from joining Sunderland might help the 22 year old break through in the future.
The Black Cats put out a statement, saying: "Sunderland AFC have completed the signing of defender DeAndre Yedlin on a season-long loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur.
"The 22-year-old USA international full-back becomes the Black Cats' eighth signing this summer, following Fabio Borini, Jeremain Lens, Yann M'Vila, Ola Toivonen, Younes Kaboul, Seb Coates and Adam Matthews to the Stadium of Light."
Yedlin, who will be looking to continue getting game time as he features for the US international side, said: "I'm delighted to be given the opportunity to play for a club with such great history.
"I've heard fantastic things about Sunderland and the supporters from Claudio Reyna and Jozy Altidore. Claudio speaks very highly of Dick Advocaat from his time at Rangers."
Spurs signed a trio of defenders this summer, bringing in Belgian Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid, Kieran Trippier from Burnley and Austrian defender Kevin Wimmer from Koln.
But the North London outfit are still without a win this season and their deadline day work looks to have failed thus far, with Daniel Levy unable to seal a deal for Saido Berahino.
