TUKWILA, Wash. (AP) — DeAndre Yedlin has rejoined the Seattle Sounders amid reports that a move to Europe is on the horizon following his impressive performance for the United States in the World Cup.

Yedlin took part in training Monday and is expected to be available for both of Seattle’s matches this week against rival Portland — first in the U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday and then in MLS play Sunday.

Yedlin did not comment directly on reports coming from Italy about a pending deal that would see the 20-year-old defender move to AS Roma in 2015 after completing this season with Seattle. Yedlin said he’s letting his representatives handle any discussions and Seattle general manager Adrian Hanauer issued a statement saying if a deal with a foreign team is finalized the team will announce it.
