What’s the story?
At the moment, Newcastle have three-right backs of similar quality. Indeed, Yedlin, Javier Manquillo and Emil Krafth all average roughly similar numbers for tackles (1.5, 2 and 1.4 respectively) and interceptions (1.2, 0.6 and 1) per game according to WhoScored.
With that in mind, seeing any of them depart is unlikely to cause too much of a problem, though Yedlin’s recovery pace compared to those two teammates does make him a slightly better fit if Newcastle do want to adopt a higher line.
Still, Lee Ryder recently revealed that the club’s hopes of strengthening depend on getting players out, so any help on that front by selling players would surely be welcome.
