The team said Wednesday the decision was by mutual consent. Yedlin was due to report to the U.S. national team in Columbus, Ohio, ahead of its World Cup qualifier against El Salvador on Thursday.
He had not arrived by Wednesday’s training session due to weather conditions leaving Istanbul.
The 28-year-old from Seattle, a member of the U.S. roster at the 2014 World Cup, joined Galatasaray for the second half of the 2020-21 season.
He played for Major League Soccer’s Seattle Sounders FC in 2013 and ’14, and then joined Tottenham Hotspur for the second half of the 2014-15 season and appeared in one match, against Aston Villa.
He was loaned to Sunderland for 2015-16, then spent four seasons with Newcastle United.
