Former Tottenham goalkeeper Kasey Keller has advised US World Cup star DeAndre Yedlin against a move to Tottenham, according to Goal.
The 21-year-old full-back caught the interest of a number of Premier League clubs during this summer’s World Cup.
But with Spurs the latest club to be linked with a move for the Seattle Sounders youngster, Keller believes it would be a mistake and could hinder his development.
He said: “Spurs is a tricky place to play.
“They’re a team that has a lot of turnover in players. Spurs are a team that has the money, and they are always looking for a bargain, but it’s a tough place to go.
“I just want to see young American players play regularly, week in and week out. If that’s at Tottenham, great.
But if it’s not, then it’s not the right move. It’s hard to develop if you don’t play.”
And Keller even went as far to suggest Yedlin wouldn’t even get a work permit to play in England.
“I’m not sure DeAndre would even qualify for a work permit,” he admitted.
“He’s never started a game for the national team. England is a tough place to get a work permit.
“My guess would be that if Tottenham is in the race, it would be to sign DeAndre and loan him out some where.”
