Newcastle defender Yedlin wants clarity from the club

Newcastle defender DeAndre Yedlin is demanding clarity from the club over his future.

The 27-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at St James’ Park this season, having only made six Premier League appearances.

“At this moment (I want) some clarity over whether Newcastle want me to stay or whether I can go,” he told CBS Sports.

“Whatever it is, it’s something that needs to be talked about pretty quickly, because there’s six months left on my contract. If I’m going to leave Newcastle, there’s steps I need to take in terms of talking to other teams and things like that.

“There’s been no clarity. My agent has reached out to people at Newcastle, and they’ve responded back saying ‘yes, we’ll call you’, and there are no calls back. That has been quite frustrating.”

This will be a major cause of frustration to the American. He is now at the peak of his career, which means he will be looking for regular game time.

It was reported that Yedlin was on the verge of leaving St James’ Park last summer before ultimately staying.

The right-back joined the Magpies from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2016. Since then, he has gone on to make 112 league appearances for the Toon.

His current contract with the club is set to expire in the summer, and he has not signed a new deal. Under Steve Bruce, it appears unlikely that Yedlin will have a future with the club.

However, Bruce’s future with Newcastle is also the subject of speculation. Should a new manager arrive, it remains to be seen if Yedlin will form part of his plans.
