Tottenham To Bring Forward Yedlin Arrival And Sell Naughton To Swansea City

Spurs ready to change things around at right back.

Tottenham Hotspur are set to exercise their option to bring forward the arrival of right back DeAndre Yedlin from Seattle Sounders in January, report the Mirror, a move which would also allow them to sell Kyle Naughton to Swansea City as Garry Monk looks to strengthen his squad after a solid start to the season.

Spurs secured a deal to sign Yedlin following his fine displays for the USA at the summer World Cup, but the flying full back was not due to arrive at White Hart Lane until next summer, something that manager Mauricio Pochettino is keen to bring forward to give him additional options down the right flank.

Bringing Yedlin to the club in January would allow Spurs to sell Kyle Naughton, who has been on the periphery of the Tottenham team over recent seasons, with Swansea City believed to be keen on bringing the former Sheffield United youngster to the Liberty Stadium to replace ageing Spaniard Angel Rangel.

Swansea tried to sign Naughton in the summer but were unable to reach an agreement with Tottenham over the fee, but with Spurs now reportedly willing to accept an offer of around £3m, it is expected that Garry Monk and his side will be back for Naughton.
