Positive start for DeAndre

Posted on 9 January 2015  - 23:59

It has been a whirlwind few days for DeAndre Yedlin.

He trained for the first time on Wednesday after his switch from MLS side Seattle Sounders and two days later, made his competitive debut for the club with a 60-minute stint in our Barclays U21 Premier League win at West Ham.

“There’s been a lot going on,” said DeAndre. “I’m also looking for a place, getting a UK phone number, a car, not to mention driving on the other side of the road! It’s been a lot to take in but so far, so good.”

Grant Ward - back at the club after last year’s loan spell at Chicago Fire in the MLS - scored two identical free-kicks and Harry Winks slotted home as we won 3-1 on a blustery night at Rush Green to go back to the top of the table.

“It was a good win,” added DeAndre. “You have to deal with the elements, we did that and these guys are all great players.

"It was a great experience to see what this level was like and I thought it went well.

“Any time you are part of a win it’s great, the quality was excellent and I’m looking forward to progressing and helping the team.”
