Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is close to making his fourth signing of summer, with the capture American right-back DeAndre Yedlin expected to be announced in the coming days, writes Sky Sports.

The 21-year-old Seattle Sounders star is said to have agreed a long-term contract with Tottenham, who he will join at the conclusion of the current MLS season. He has completed a medical, with the deal thought to be for a fee of around £2.5m.

Seattle Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer said: "He’s talking to a big club in Europe at the moment. We are working towards a potential transaction but we expect DeAndre to be back for our game on Sunday and for the remainder of the season.

“The MLS transfer window won’t impact this deal. This potentially will be a deal where he is not immediately transferred and then loaned back, but constructed in a way that he will be here until the end of the year, or potentially longer. For him this is potentially a long-term move, not a short-term one.”

Yedlin attracted attention for his pace and attacking play at the World Cup as the United States lost in the second round to Belgium. He was second choice right-back to Fabian Johnson at the tournament, but stepped in when Johnson sustained an injury.

When he arrives at White Hart Lane, Yedlin will compete with Kyle Naughton and Kyle Walker for the right-back slot, as Pochettino continues to add to his defensive options having already signed Ben Davies and Eric Dier. The Argentine also holds an interest in Villarreal centre-back Mateo Musacchio.
