Leeds complete £12m transfer for RB Leipzig star Tyler Adams

The Whites are claimed to have agreed a fee with the Bundesliga outfit for the 23-year-old AmericanLeeds had opened talks with Leipzig over a £12million dealJournalist Fabrizio Romano claims the entire package, including add-ons, is worth up to £20m.

Adams is now set to travel to Elland Road for a medical. Leeds United’s interest in signing Tyler Adams from RB Leipzig was more than predictable because the United States international is much more than just a former player for Jesse Marsch. The bond between them was forged many years agoBoss

Jesse Marsch wanted the defensive midfielder, who can also play right-back, after managing him at Leipzig. Adams is expected to come in to replace Kalvin Phillips, who joined Manchester City yesterday in a £45m deal. Leeds are understood to have fought off competition from elsewhere in the Premier League to bag Adams' signature.

Everton had been one of a number of clubs interested in the 19-cap USA international.

though Adams is close to being officially confirmed as a Leeds player Romano also says the capture of Adams means Leeds will not pursue a move for his RB Leipzig teammate Mohamed Camara. There had been suggestions the Whites were in talks with Leipzig regarding moves for both players.

But Adams is thought to have always been the club's priority target.

Leeds have already bolstered their midfield ranks this summer with the £10m addition of Spaniard Marc Roca.

Elsewhere attacking midfielder Brenden Aaronson and right-back Rasmus Kristensen arrived from RB Salzburg for a combined £35m.
