United States right back DeAndre Yedlin is leaving Newcastle to join Turkish club Galatasaray.
Newcastle manager Steve Bruce said Monday the deal is close to being completed, with Yedlin now third-choice right back at the Premier League club.
“I’d like to wish DeAndre the very best of luck in Turkey,” Bruce said. “He’s certainly playing for a huge club in Galatasaray, so I wish him the best of luck.
“He’s a great pro and a great lad, and sometimes you have to make decisions to let one out.”
