While DeAndre Yedlin is now officially a Sunderland loan player (say your prayers tonight, beat the rush), I was also caught by another tidbit just released. Jonathan Spector is back in the USMNT frame, folks.... but at what position? This could be interesting.

A new Yedlin tidbit

I have been informed that Spurs have now rejected a second loan offer from the continent for DeAndre Yedlin. As you already know, I heavily suspect the first offer that was turned away came from Anderlecht. I do not yet know where this second "no" has landed. Stay tuned...

Belgian Stuff

Two items for ya here, both related to the Jupiler League:

  • I can confirm that DeAndre Yedlin will not be heading to Anderlecht on loan, as widely reported as a good possibility the last couple days in numerous Belgian outlets. I had heard they made a loan + buy option offer and were rejected by Spurs, but have not confirmed those twin aspects of the story yet. As you may recall, the Mauves were among the bidders before the right-sider joined Tottenham.
  • This seems a strange story I will definitely get to you next week at MLSS, but Shane O'Neill has moved on a full transfer from Cypriot outfit Apollon Limassol to Belgium's Royal Mouscron-Péruwelz. He signed a two-year deal last night and will join the club once he is done with US Under-23 duty. A report is coming to MLSS in a bit.

D - Ventura Alvarado (Club América), Matt Besler (Sporting KC), John Anthony Brooks (Hertha Berlin), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), Greg Garza (Atlas), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Michael Orozco (Tijuana), Tim Ream (Fulham)

How does one say "free toaster" in German?

Werder Bremen forward Aron Jóhannsson has opened his Bundesliga account with a minimum balance of one goal. He opened the scoring in a sorely-needed 2-1 win over 'Gladbach from the spot.

Clip to come...

Goodies for breakfast? Do not let your mom tell you that is bad for you. I can confirm that clubs from Denmark and Italy have joined the DeAndre Yedlin loan chase. And I think I know who one of those is. Let me get back to you on that...
