Sky Sports is reporting that DeAndre Yedlin is not training with Newcastle today as he seeks a move to Turkish club Besiktas.
On Friday, Sky Sports revealed Besiktas were interested in bringing the American in on a free despite Yedlin having another year left on his contract.
A move away for Yedlin has been a constant source of speculation this summer with links to a return to the MLS also doing the rounds.
Steve Bruce downplayed the report claiming it was pure speculation during his press conference for Brighton. Yedlin was spotted in the training images released by the club on Saturday.
Yedlin was not named to the matchday squad for yesterday’s debacle. However, he did start in the Carabao Cup win against Blackburn on Tuesday.
The sticking point right now appears to be that Newcastle are trying to negotiate a fee for the 27-year-old, who joined four years ago from Tottenham.
Bruce had recently claimed that it was unhealthy for there to be three right-backs at the club. With Yedlin third in the pecking order, it’s looking like he could be next Magpie out the door the summer.
