Sunderland ready to take DeAndre Yedlin on loan

Yedlin needs playing time, so this at least would make sense.

DeAndre Yedlin has been waiting in the wings to find out what the future holds for him this season. There has apparently been plenty of interest across Europe, but with every window on the main continent now closed, the options are limited for the American International. Any kind of news coming out about Yedlin has to be treated with some kind of seriousness, given we're under three hours to go in the window.

According to journalist Mike McGrath, Sunderland have apparently stepped in to show interest in taking on Yedlin for the season.

McGrath has done pieces for multiple outlets and he's followed by a decent amount of journalists and agents in the sport, so this isn't crazy, especially since a loan to a Premier League club would make plenty of sense. Sunderland could certainly use the help as their defense has been nothing short of awful, though this rumor doesn't say whether he'd play at fullback or up higher as a midfielder/winger.

We'll see if anything comes of this. It feels like it could be a thing, but we'll share in everyone's skepticism if this just feels a little like Bat Country.
