MIAMI – Inter Miami CF made a big splash on Wednesday as the 2022 MLS season draws closer.

The local club that plays its home games in Fort Lauderdale at DRV PNK Stadium announced the signing of U.S Men’s National Team defender DeAndre Yedlin with the No. 1 Allocation Ranking.

“I’m thrilled that we’re able to bring a player of the quality of DeAndre to Inter Miami,” said IMCF Chief Soccer Officer and Sporting Director Chris Henderson. “He is a very talented, exciting, and dynamic player on the pitch and an experienced winner who is also a positive character in the locker room that will help us improve our roster.”
