Sounders FC homegrown All-Star right back DeAndre Yedlin was back at Sounders training today. Coach Sigi Schmid was asked his status.
"He was out here, he trained with us today," Schmid said. "We think everything will be finished and done, so our expectation is that he will start for us tomorrow."
Schmid deferred to the Sounders' front office for expanding on what will be finished and when it will be done. However, the expectation is that he means the club is pretty much down to the dotting of i's and crossing of t's on Yedlin's expected transfer to Tottenham Hotspur -- although no such details came from the club today, and there was no indication of an immediate announcement as nighttime already has arrived in London.
The Sounders meet the Chicago Fire at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the semifinals of the U.S. Open Cup at Starfire Sports Stadium in Tukwila.
