DeAndre Yedlin Traded from Inter Miami CF to FC Cincinnati

FC Cincinnati has acquired right back DeAndre Yedlin from Inter Miami CF in a recent trade, opening up salary-cap space for Inter Miami. Yedlin brings valuable experience to Cincinnati's defense, having played in two FIFA World Cups for the USMNT. Miami now has the opportunity to fill the right back position and strengthen their squad as they compete for titles.


FC Cincinnati Acquires DeAndre Yedlin

FC Cincinnati and Inter Miami CF have completed a trade involving right back DeAndre Yedlin. Cincinnati will receive Yedlin, while Inter Miami will receive $172,799 in 2024 General Allocation Money (GAM). This acquisition boosts Cincinnati's defense and provides them with a player who has extensive international experience.

Yedlin, who has represented the USMNT in two FIFA World Cups, brings leadership and quality to Cincinnati. With a total of 81 caps for the national team, he is a valuable addition to the team's roster. Cincinnati's general manager, Chris Albright, expressed excitement about welcoming Yedlin and praised his leadership qualities.

Opportunities for Inter Miami

As Inter Miami bid farewell to Yedlin, they now have the task of finding a suitable replacement at right back. One potential option is Julian Gressel, who has shown an attack-minded approach in previous MLS clubs. In the midfield, Federico Redondo is expected to fill in once his work visa is approved.

The departure of Yedlin also gives Inter Miami financial flexibility and an open international roster slot. This allows them to explore options for reinforcing their squad, both domestically and abroad. With the Primary Transfer Window open, they have the opportunity to bring in a right-back reinforcement as they aim to compete for various trophies.

Cincinnati and Miami's Title Defense

Both FC Cincinnati and Inter Miami CF are defending titles in the 2024 season and are considered contenders for the MLS Cup. Their upcoming matches will be highly anticipated, with Cincinnati and Miami scheduled to face each other twice this season.

In addition to their MLS campaign, both clubs are also participating in the Concacaf Champions Cup Round of 16. These matches will test their abilities against strong opponents and provide an opportunity to showcase their competitiveness on an international stage.
