USA World Cup star DeAndre Yedlin is close to finalizing a transfer to Serie A club AS Roma, according to Greg Seltzer of No Short Corners.

Yedlin, who was one of the bright stars for the United States in the World Cup and was described by Paddy Barclay as one of the best right midfielders he’s seen since David Beckham, played both as right back and right winger for the USA Men’s National Team in Brazil. The 20-year-old footballer, who is currently on the books at Seattle Sounders, will likely continue playing for Seattle on loan from AS Roma after the deal is signed.  Then when MLS season is over, Yedlin is likely to move to another Serie A club, again on a loan deal, to gain more experience at a top level.

Meanwhile, the rumors published in a British tabloid about Liverpool trying to sign Yedlin are not true.
