Newcastle have today announced the signing of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] defender[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].


Speaking to the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]'s latest recruit DeAndre Yedlin has called it an 'honour' to join Rafa Benitez's side, who has returned the compliment by praising his 'attacking mentality.'

"I'm excited to learn under Rafa Benitez as well. He has an amazing résumé and I know he will help improve me a lot.

Benitez too is looking forward to working with his new recruit, whom he describes as having an 'attacking mentality', which will go down with Toon fans.
"In DeAndre we have a player who knows English football well. He has good experience, an attacking mentality, ability and great pace," Benitez said.
"I think he can do really well for us and will give us good competition on the right."
Newcastle today sold Daryl Janmaat to Watford for a reported £7 million, and Yedlin's signing will be a direct replacement for the outgoing Dutchman.
Yedlin, who made just one appearance during his time at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], has signed a five year deal on Tyneside, keeping him at the club until at least 2021.
