DeAndre Yedlin undergoes surgery to repair groin injury

DeAndre Yedlin has undergone groin surgery, putting an end to his 2018-19 Premier League season with Newcastle United.

He had started most of the season for the Magpies before losing his starting job at right back to Javier Manquillo in April. It coincided with Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez's move to five in the back.

Yedlin was on the bench for three games until injuring his groin before Saturday's 3-2 loss to Newcastle United. He finishes with 29 appearances (28 starts) in the 2018-19 Premier League. He played 34 games in 2017-18.

No timetable for his recovery was given to determine if he'd be ready for the Gold Cup. He captained the USA in its 1-1 tie with Chile in March but was not expected to be the starting right back if U.S. national team Gregg Berhalter stuck with Tyler Adams in the hybrid role of a right back in a defensive role and central midfielder in an attacking role.

    Hope he heals fully. But, IMO, he offers limited capabilities going forward with the USMNT.
