Full-back Deandre Yedlin has said that he would be open to making a return to Sunderland.
Don't rule it out
The American has impressed while on loan at Stadium of Light after joining from Tottenham Hotspur last summer, especially since the arrival of current manager Sam Allardyce, making the right-back slot his own in the last three months of the season.
Yedlin is expected to return to White Hart Lane after taking part in the Copa America this summer, but with competition strong in the full-back positions in North London, Yedlin said that he wouldn't rule out a return.
He told Goal USA that the option to return to the North East is a door that he "would not close" and wouldn't mind "going back" as he had a "great time there".
Yedlin continued saying that "any opportunity" in the Premier League is a "big opportunity" and that is "unbelievable" to be playing in the league and will look to start at the Copa America and try to "impress a lot more people".

It is rumoured that Allardyce is willing to make a bid for the 22-year-old believed to be around £2million and says that Harry Kane is a hope that he can still make it at the lane.
Yedlin said that a "year of playing is all you need" to give you that "little bit of confidence".
He continued saying that Kane is a prime example since returning from his loan spell two years ago and has returned to the club and "absolutely kills it" and is now "England's No.1 striker".
Yedlin added that confidence is a "funny thing" and that you need just that "little bit" to "elevate you to the next level".
