Tottenham Hotspur are looking to bring summer signing DeAndre Yedlin into the club in January, having initially agreed that the player could stay with the Seattle Sounders until next summer, as reported by the Daily Star.
Yedlin emerged as one of the most exciting talents in the United States national team at the World Cup in Brazil, and Spurs moved quickly to confirm a transfer for him in August, paying £2.5 million to the MLS side to sign him.
The player remained at Seattle on loan, with Spurs only intending to bring the 21 year old in next summer.
This was because Yedlin could not secure a work permit at that point, having not played enough international games.
However, Spurs are now hoping that a European heritage can allow them to bring Yedlin in soon.
The player has Latvian heritage, and is looking to get a passport from the European nation in order to make his move to White Hart Lane.
He said: “I’m working on getting a Latvian passport.
“If that goes through then January is definitely very possible.”
