When DeAndre Yedlin comes home, he drives around in a Rolls Royce

New, comments

It seems to suit him.

All the way up until he left the Seattle Sounders to chase the European dream, DeAndre Yedlin was known for driving around in a hand-me-down Subaru with more than 250,000 miles on it. Oh how times have changed.

Back in town for the English offseason, the now Newcastle right back paid a visit to Sounders headquarters in Pioneer Square. While he was there, Steve Zakuani made sure to let everyone know that Yedlin is driving around Seattle in what appears to be a Rolls Royce Ghost, a car that retails for more than $310,000.

I think we can assume Yedlin didn’t buy this car, being that he’s probably here for only a month or two. (And truth be told, we spent way too much time trying to figure out how much it might cost to rent one for a short time.) But just that he has access to this sort of ride is another reminder that life in the Premier League is a lot different than as a MLS youngster.

Considering Yedlin is coming off a season in which he made 31 Premier League starts, I think we can all agree he’s earned this kind of luxury.
