DeAndre Yedlin became yet another signing from the January transfer window.

Coming over from the Seattle Sounders of MLS, DeAndre Yedlin put himself out there for the world to see in the biggest competition football has to offer — the World Cup.

His main position is at right back, but under Sigi Schmid and Jürgen Klinsmann’s watch, Yedlin has seen himself move up the field in an attacking role.
