At long last, it’s official: DeAndre Yedlin is joining Tottenham Hotspur in January, the English Premier League club confirmed Tuesday in a release.

Reports from both The People and MLSSoccer.com over the weekend indicated that Yedlin had received a UK work permit, clearing the final hurdle for a winter move.

The 21-year-old Seattle native finishes his Sounders career with 56 league games played, six assists and a single goal. Yedlin made 10 appearances with the U.S. men’s national team in 2014, including three at the World Cup in Brazil, and was named the federation’s Young Male Athlete of the Year.

“DeAndre is a young player with great potential who has already achieved a lot in Major League Soccer,” Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino said on the team site.

“It is important for his development that he is given the time to adapt to his new surroundings both on and off the pitch and we believe that by coming to us in January it will give him the best opportunity to do so.”
