Two leading clubs table bids for fringe Tottenham player - report
By Dominic Toner
Derby and Hull have submitted bids for Tottenham defender DeAndre Yedlin, according to a report.
The Mail report that the Premier League club and the Championship outfit, who are one of the favourites for promotion, have both submitted offers in the region of £3.5million for the USA international.
The right-back spent last season on loan at Sunderland, helping them to maintain their Premier League status, and could be surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane.
Yedlin was not included in the 18-man Tottenham squad that began their campaign with a 1-1 draw at Everton on Saturday.

Yedlin played a key role for the Black Cats last season as they avoided relegation under the new England manager Sam Allardyce.
The right-back made 25 appearances for Sunderland across all competitions and made a strong impression with his defending and pace when attacking during his time at the club.
New Sunderland manager David Moyes told the Sunderland Echo at the start of August that they were still interested in the 23-year-old even though Allardyce is no longer at the helm.
The full-back joined Spurs from Seattle Sounders in 2014 on a four-year contract but has only made one competitive appearance for the London club.
Spurs are well equipped in the full-back position with English pair Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier ahead of Yedlin in the battle for right-back.
With Mauricio Pochettino having defensive cover at his disposal he could be prepared to let Yedlin depart and the competition for his signature is tough.
Newly-promoted Hull are in desperate need of some new signings to supplement their very thin squad, although they got off to the perfect start with a shock 2-1 victory over champions Leicester.
Former Leicester and now Derby manager Nigel Pearson is preparing a promotion push in the Championship and Sunderland could still return for a reunion with Yedlin.
In other Tottenham transfer news, they are ready to offload two players to make way for a £13million-rated midfielder.
