New signing DeAndre Yedlin has been lauding Rafa Benitez in the media.

The right back has had a great start in a black and white shirt since joining from Tottenham.

He is enjoying playing under Benitez, while he has also said that he is developing a real connection with Matt Ritchie.

The US international has enjoyed playing behind Ritchie and the two could emerge as the first choice pair down the right hand side this season.

“He’s a great player to play with, he’s always going to give 100 per cent.

“Even if you make a mistake, he’s right there behind you, which is huge.

“As long as you’ve got their back, and they’ve got yours – I think it’s a hard connection to stop.”
