DeAndre Yedlin has joked about taking Christian Pulisic to Newcastle
Christian Pulisic is one of the most highly rated young midfielders in Europe and is reportedly on Arsenal and Liverpool's radars.
The Borussia Dortmund star has been in fine form this season and impressed in last night's 3-2 defeat to Monaco in the Champions League.
The 18-year-old USA international caught the eye of one Newcastle who jokingly tweeted after the game about him moving to St James' Park.
And Toon right-back DeAndre Yedlin replied, claiming he would do his best to convince his fellow countryman to move to the north east.
Wonder if @yedlinny could convince Pulisic to come play for the Toon next season? Kid looks superb.

"Wonder if @yedlinny could convince Pulisic to come play for the Toon next season? Kid looks superb," Newcastle fan Andrew Nesbitt wrote.
And Yedlin replied, "I'll do my best."
However, Newcastle could have their work cut out trying to convince Pulisic to make the move.
The teenager signed a new deal with Dortmund in January, keeping him at the German club until June 2020.
