DeAndre Yedlin Returning to Premier League as Newcastle United is Promoted
Monday saw Newcastle United become the 21st team to be promoted directly back to the Premier League in their first season following relegation. Thanks to Newcastle’s defeat of Preston (4-1), the team joins Brighton to become the first two teams promoted from the EFL Championship.
The team’s promotion to the Premier League will also mean that U.S. men’s national team Yedlin will be making a return to top tier UK football. The former Seattle Sounder defender recently returned from an almost two-month injury hiatus and is excited to be joining Newcastle in the League.
