There was no official update on the status of the young DeAndre Yedlin, but the Seattle Sounders seem to think this saga is drawing very close to an end.
Your daily Yedlin update: Schmid said 'we think everything is going to be finished and done' by tomorrow's cup semifinal— Matt Pentz (@mattpentz) August 12, 2014
No transfer announcement yet, but Schmid says he expects Yedlin to start for Sounders tomorrow.— Don Ruiz (@donruiztnt) August 12, 2014
Assuming there have been no dramatic, behind-the-scenes changes this all points to Yedlin signing some kind of deal with Tottenham Hotspur that would allow him to remain with the Sounders until the end of the season. There have been reports suggesting AS Roma is still trying to secure Yedlin, but there's little reason to think they are anything beyond a fallback option at this point.
If Yedlin's deal is not finalized, however, it appears as though he won't be allowed to play in Wednesday's U.S. Open Cup semifinal against the Chicago Fire. The reasoning there seems to be that neither the Sounders nor Yedlin are ready to risk injury and thus jeopardize a potential transfer. Any physical Yedlin has undergone would probably be voided if he were to play in a competitive match, even if he wasn't injured, and push his status back into limbo.
How that differs from Yedlin being allowed to remain with the Sounders for the next four months is not entirely clear, but it's possible that Tottenham made this part of their agreement.
