Yedlin is doing a ton of stuff this week. One thing he hasn't done? Signed a contract with a club in Europe.

Golazo

It wouldn't be a day without something in the DeAndre Yedlin rumor mill. Today's nugget comes directly from his agent, who denies that Yedlin and/or MLS/Sounders have reached a final agreement with any club in Europe.

That denial comes as DeAndre is making his love and affection for the area and the fans known quite well. He hosted an event with Golazo and GameTruck Seattle for 10 lucky fans who played EA FIFA with the United States National Team Star.

Saturday night he and Clint Dempsey are the Grand Marshals of the Torchlight Parade with about 300,000 people expected to attend. He's really excited for that. You can see his smile in the words (News Tribune).

It's huge. I'm a Seattle kid, so anytime I can take part in a Seattle event like this, it's great for me. I went as a kid, so it will be exciting now to be in the parade and see what it's like from that point of view.

While DeAndre's agent, MLS and Seattle Sounders FC are talking about a potential transfer he is focusing on all the things that make him so popular here - bonding with fans, showering love on the city and focusing on the game itself.

On transfer rumors: I'm not really paying attention to them to be honest. I'm just keeping my mind on Seattle.

He's ours. He's one of us.
