Darren Lewis of The Mirror has tonight revealed that Bolton Wanderers are in the hunt for Tottenham Hotspur's American wing-back DeAndre Yedlin on loan.

Spurs have this week confirmed the signing of former Burnley and Manchester City right-back Kieran Trippier who will provide competition for England donkey Kyle Walker, meaning that the former Seattle Sounders youngster will most likely spend the 2015/16 season out on loan.

A product of O'Dea High School in Seattle, Yedlin was part of Washington Youth Soccer's State Olympic Development Program from 2006 to 2009.

He came to prominence during his World Cup debut against Portugal in 2014, coming on as a late second-half substitute. He helped set up Sounders teammate Clint Dempsey's late goal which put the US up 2-1. His performances in the remaining fixtures for the United States National Team earned rave reviews, and prompted a £2m move to Tottenham shortly after. He struggled initially, making just one appearance against Aston Villa in April.

It is reported that Bolton face competition from big-spending Derby County.
