With any luck, DeAndre Yedlin will have a chance to settle in at Newcastle United, establish a starting spot on the English Championship side, and help the storied club get promoted to the English Premier League. Jurgen Klinsmann seems inclined to start Yedlin at right back for the U.S. national team, and steady playing time in England will help Yedlin keep the gig.
