Newcastle defender Yedlin: I was ready for MLS return

Newcastle United defender DeAndre Yedlin admits he was ready to return to MLS after just a few months in England.

The USA international originally joined Tottenham Hotspur from Seattle Sounders in 2015.

"It was actually quite tough for me in the beginning," he told ESPN. "There were times when I was like 'this is too much,' the jump from MLS to here in all aspects of it, not just the football aspect.

"I remember being in my apartment thinking like, 'I can't do this, I want to go back.'

"That just goes to show that money is not everything because I was much happier making whatever I was making at MLS - which was much less than what I was making at Tottenham - but because life wasn't giving me what I needed, I was depressed. It was a very tough first six months for me."
