Leeds confirm Tyler Adams transfer to Bournemouth in 18 word statement

Leeds United confirmed Tyler Adams joined Bournemouth in a brief statement on Sunday.

The USA international, who had a medical at Chelsea earlier in the summer, joins the Premier League side in a permanent deal.

Adams had a £20m release clause in his contractAFP

Leeds said: “Leeds United can confirm Tyler Adams has joined AFC Bournemouth in a permanent deal, for an undisclosed fee.”

The 24-year-old only joined Leeds last summer from RB Leipzig in a reported £20million deal.

He made 24 appearances for them last campaign as they were relegated to the Championship.

Adams had a relegation release clause in his contract, that was activated by Chelsea at first.

He underwent a medical at Stamford Bridge before they turned their focus to Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia.

Bournemouth came in and completed the deal for him.

Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake said: “We’re thrilled to have brought Tyler to the club and he is a player we’ve admired for a long time.

“It’s been widely documented how much his talents have been recognised in this transfer window by other clubs, so to have him sign for AFC Bournemouth shows the ambition we have as a club.

“Tyler is an exciting player who possesses plenty of experience for someone that is just 24 years of age and we’re looking forward to working with him as he’s a player we know will be a great addition to our squad.”
