(Tweet) It’s fair to say new boy DeAndre Yedlin underestimated Newcastle United’s fan-following

DeAndre Yedlin made the move down the division to Newcastle United this summer after failing to establish himself at Tottenham.

The defender though has thrived under Rafa Benitez as Newcastle top the Championship table. Ahead of the EFL cup tie against Preston North End, Yedlin tweeted surprise at Newcastle United’s announcement of having sold more than 40,000 tickets for the tie. Check out the tweet below!

It appears that the defender is finally catching up on the passion of the Toon army.

The 40,000 tickets sold could well make the EFL tie the most watched tie since 1976 when 49,902 fans watched Manchester United take on Tottenham in the EFL cup semi-final.
