American Yedlin terminates contract with Turkish soccer team


By The Associated Press

American defender DeAndre Yedlin has terminated his contract with Turkish soccer club Galatasaray after one year. The team said the decision was by mutual consent. Yedlin was due to report to the U.S. national team in Columbus, Ohio, ahead of its World Cup qualifier against El Salvador on Thursday. He had not arrived by Wednesday’s training session. The 28-year-old, a member of the U.S. roster at the 2014 World Cup, joined Galatasaray for the second half of the 2020-21 season. He played for Major League Soccer’s Seattle Sounders, Tottenham, Sunderland and Newcastle.
