The flame of his passion for “the beautiful game” was ignited by his uncle and former All-American football player Dylan Walton-Yedlin at the tender age of four.
By the time he was eleven, he had already evolved into an offensive, explosive and tricky lad, unlike the defensive one he would later go on to be.
Before starting his college career, he embarked an astounding youth career with Emerald City FC, Northwest Nationals, Crossfire Premier and Seattle Sounders FC till 2011.
He pursued his college at the University of Akron making 23 appearances in freshman year and another 22 appearances in the sophomore year, with six assists in each. Meanwhile, he also earned his place in the 2012 All-PDL First XI playing for Seattle’s U-23 in the Premier Development League.
His breakthrough as a professional would come only after being signed as the first homegrown player by Seattle Sounders FC 2013. He became an immediate success with the feat of being the first rookie ever to be selected the MLS Team of the Week.
Another rookie record was broken when he was the 3rd ranked MLS player under the age of 24 years and the All-Star team as the only second rookie to do so.
Once he was shot into the limelight, bids began to pour for this star with Tottenham Hotspur winning the race for him in 2014 following their $ 4 million worth deal. However, he made only one appearance for North London outfit before being loaned to the Sunderland in 2015/16 season. When DeAndre transferred to the club, Sunderland was battling in the relegation zone.

His arrival and 23 appearances turned the tide for the Black Cats to ensure their berth in the top tier for yet another season. With Sunderland preparing a £ 2 million deal for him, he is speculated to be with Sam Allardyce side in this coming quest of 2016 too.
After completing the five-year contract with Tottenham, he joined the Newcastle United on $6.6 million transfer deal. Sharing his excitement, Yedlin stated,
"Newcastle is such a big and historic club, and I'm excited to have the honour of playing for them. Hopefully I can do great things here. I'm excited to learn under Rafa Benitez as well. He has an amazing rÃ©sumÃ© and I know he will help improve me a lot. I can't wait to get started."
Newcastle United's manager, Rafa Benitez also gave his words on Yedlin joining the club saying,
"We have known for a little while of Watford's interest in Daryl Janmaat, so it was important for us to bring in a replacement immediately. In DeAndre we have a player who knows English football well. He has good experience, an attacking mentality, ability and great pace. I think he can do really well for us and will give us good competition on the right."
Joining the Newcastle United, he has the impressive stats on the premier league.
DeAndre Yedlin's International Career
Yedlin is one name that has been reverberating in American international soccer since he was called up for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup held in Turkey. Although it was only recently in 2014 that he received his senior team debut, he seems to have cemented his jersey number 2 in Jurgen Klinsmann’s squad already. He became a member of the US national team in 2014.
He has had a disciplined defensive record until the recent red card in a 1-0 triumph against Paraguay in Copa America 2016 that saw him miss 2-1 win over Ecuador in Quarter Finals.
His play has often drawn the comparison with Barcelona and Brazilian legend, Dani Alves, who happen to be his idol too.
"Yedlin is a little bullet.Great to see a fullback forward and back with the same intensity."

It apparently seems so.
Even when he was in his early phase at Sounders FC, his salary used to be the hefty sum of $80000 that doubled following his selection in the USMNT to be the club’s first product to manage World Cup participation.
Although his current salary and net worth are yet to be disclosed, it still must be a lot.
