DeAndre Yedlin arrives in Newcastle

Tottenham Hotspur are attempting to clear out the deadwood at the club and young American full back DeAndre Yedlin appears to be one of the players on his way out.

The 23-year-old arrived in Newcastle this afternoon and is understood to be very close to sealing a permanent £5m transfer to Championship club Newcastle United.

Capped 39 times by the United States, Yedlin made just one Premier League appearance for Spurs and spent last season on loan at nearby Sunderland.

Ryan Mason in talks with Hull

Relegation favourites Hull City have surprised many by winning their first two Premier League games of the season and are still trying to strengthen their squad.

Sky Sports today revealed that Hull are in talks with Tottenham over a permanent transfer for the services of Ryan Mason.

The 25-year-old England international started just eight Premier League games last season and could be interested in linking up with a number of former Spurs players who are currently at the KC Stadium.

Tom Huddlestone, Jake Livermore and Michael Dawson all trained with Ryan Mason before leaving Spurs for Hull.
