Tyler Adams set to join Bournemouth from Leeds

Bournemouth are poised to sign Leeds United defensive midfielder Tyler Adams, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Although Adams has been recuperating from a hamstring injury at Leeds, all signs now point towards a transfer to the south coast. 

However, the journey to this agreement hasn’t been without its fair share of drama. 

The Cherries initially triggered the £20 million buyout clause in his contract on Monday, but a dispute emerged when Leeds contested the activation, arguing it had expired.

Despite this, the two clubs have found common ground for Adams’ transfer to the Vitality Stadium. 

The 26-year-old will undergo a medical assessment at Bournemouth later today.

Adams arrived at the club last summer and was impactful during his 26 appearances. 

He featured for the United States at the 2022 World Cup and was one of their top performers, further enhancing his reputation.

A hamstring injury halted his progression, and he has been unable to recover fully since then.

Leeds suffered in his absence, eventually losing their place in the top flight at the end of last season.

Adams came close to a move to Chelsea before they shifted their attention elsewhere, ultimately signing Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia

The midfielder is Bournemouth’s eighth signing this summer following moves for Alex Scott, Hamed Junior Traore, Milos Kerkez, Justin Kluivert, Max Aarons, Ionut Radu and Romain Faivre. 

Leeds will need to use the £20 million transfer fee wisely as they strive to assemble a squad capable of winning promotion back to the Premier League.
