News Update


Tyler Adams, a midfielder from the United States, has joined Bournemouth from Leeds United.

Tyler Adams has joined Bournemouth from Leeds United for an undisclosed amount in excess of £20 million.

Adams, 24, signed a five-year contract with Leeds after joining from RB Leipzig last summer.

He has, however, moved on after the Elland Road club was relegated from the Premier League last season.

“To have him sign for AFC Bournemouth shows the ambition we have as a club,” Cherries chief executive Neill Blake said.

“We’re delighted to have brought Tyler to the club, and he’s a player we’ve long admired.”

“It’s been widely reported how much his talents have been recognized by other clubs during this transfer window.”

Bournemouth were assumed to have exercised a £20m release clause in the player’s contract, but BBC Sport understands the fee for Adams is much greater and does not include a release clause.

During the 2022-23 season, the US international appeared in 26 games for Leeds.

He did not play, though, after undergoing hamstring surgery at the end of March.

“Not an easy goodbye,” Adams remarked on Twitter in response to Leeds fans. “The club, my teammates, and the fans have always been there for me, and I wish I could have given more in the final stretch.” “I will be eternally grateful for the past year.”

Adams appeared to be on his way to Chelsea this summer, but talks between the Blues and Leeds apparently fell through.

“Tyler is an exciting player with plenty of experience for someone his age,” Blake continued. “We’re looking forward to working with him as he’s a player we know will be a great addition to our squad.”

Adams is manager Andoni Iraola’s sixth summer acquisition, joining England U20 star Alex Scott, 19, who joined from Bristol City earlier this month for an estimated £25 million.
