I know this may come as a great shock to all of you, but this unsourced UK tabloid report claiming that DeAndre Yedlin will receive his shiny new Latvian passport in two weeks and then join Spurs in January is at best premature and at worst just false.
I have been informed by two separate and unconnected folks that the decision on* his passport approval is not expected until mid-December, and by extension that means there cannot already be a plan in place to take him to Tottenham when the winter transfer window opens on New Year's Day.
The flag is hereby up, so everybody in Seattle and London can hold their horses a bit longer.
