A few days ago, I was informed that the Roma move for DeAndre Yedlin had snagged. It seems Seattle/MLS had raised the fee suddenly. Naturally, I have been trying to learn more since. Reports broke yesterday that Spurs were in hijack position, but I have not been able to pin down a confirmation. And then, the Seattle Sounders ace was not in training today.
I think we now definitely know why all these things occurred (and why Franco Baldini has been ducking my calls for two days). What we do not yet know is how Roma managed to blow this. I will surely do my best to find out that, as well as exactly when Tottenham jumped the gert.
