DeAndre Yedlin relieved to be on loan to Sunderland

United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann and defender DeAndre Yedlin speak about Yedlin's loan from Tottenham to Sunderland.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- When DeAndre Yedlin woke up here on Tuesday morning, he had no idea what team he'd be with at the end of deadline day.

Then the 22-year-old, who moved from his hometown Seattle Sounders to Tottenham Hotspur of the Premier League in January, looked at his phone.

The summer transfer window often provides make-or-break career opportunities for young players. The window serves as a snapshot of a player's value within the international market, but more importantly, it serves as an opportunity for players to advance their careers by moving into club situations that are better-suited for their playing potential.

Within the United States player pool, there are a number of players who made significant moves in the 2015 summer transfer window. These players are all in search of a team that is not only competitive within its domestic competition but also provides ample opportunities for consistent playing time. This ideal club situation ultimately has a large impact on each player's future role with the U.S. team, and it is important for each national team player or prospect to base his destination on clubs that provide the right environment and opportunity to thrive.

Here are the grades for six U.S. players who either transferred or went on loan in the summer window, including DeAndre Yedlin, Aron Johannsson, Tim Ream, Gedeon Zelalem, Miguel Ibarra and Bobby Wood. Grades are based on fit with their new club and potential to improve during the 2015-16 club season.
