What’s the story?
Turkish giants Galatasaray are understood to have offered the American international a three-and-a-half-year deal and reportedly pushing for an answer from his camp.
On a free in the summer, he can discuss moves with foreign clubs and agree a pre-contract but it’s not clear if the Super Lig side would want to sign him this month.
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.
