Pack your bags DeAndre, you’re heading to London.

It has been confirmed on Monday that U.S. international DeAndre Yedlin, 21, has been granted a work permit by the UK border agency and is believed to be moving to Tottenham Hotspur in January.

The pacey right back, nurtured by the Seattle Sounders, signed for Tottenham back in the summer for a fee of around $4 million but was able to play out the 2014 Major League Soccer season with his hometown club.

However now the season is over and Spurs look to kick on in the second half of the Premier League campaign, it appears they are now likely to bring Yedlin into the fold earlier than expected.

Yedlin was initially believed to be heading to England for the start of the 2015-16 PL season, but now he has won the right to work in the UK after being granted a governing body endorsement after his appeal was successful.

ProSoccerTalk have contacted Tottenham Hotspur and have been told that more details on when Yedlin will arrive in England will be announced in due course.
