DeAndre Yedlin is officially back on the market after Galatasaray announced that the Seattle native was no longer with the team. It had been previously reported that Yedlin was going to accept a buyout.
Gösterdiğin mücadele ve takımımıza katkıların için teşekkürler Yedlin!— Galatasaray SK (@GalatasaraySK) January 26, 2022
Bundan sonraki kariyerinde başarılar dileriz. pic.twitter.com/MGDz2mOlXp
Yedlin ended up spending less than a year in Turkey, making 27 appearances and 24 starts in league play for one of the country’s biggest clubs. After helping nearly win the Turkish Süper Lig in his first season and falling just short of Champions League qualification, Galatasaray has slumped to 14th about midway through this season. Yedlin had started 15 of 23 games so far.
It’s not entirely clear what’s next for Yedlin. Last week, there was reporting that he was close to returning to MLS, with Inter Miami being the most likely destination. Not only does Miami have a personal connection with Yedlin through Chris Henderson, but they also hold the top spot in the Allocation Order and are in need of a right back. But Yedlin’s agent publicly disputed reports that a signing was imminent.
This is completely untrue. Stop the fake news. Thank you https://t.co/VJeQVyLcnf— chrismegaloudis (@chrismegaloudis) January 24, 2022
Around the same time, reports surfaced that Yedlin was in talks with Hull City about potentially returning to England. Hull are currently 19th in the EFL Championship, nine points clear of the relegation zone. Hull are also run by Tan Kesler, who helped bring Yedlin to Galatasaray last summer while working as an agent.
In the meantime, Yedlin remains with the United States men’s national team for a trio of World Cup qualifiers.
