The Blues were understood to have activated the Leeds star’s £20million release clause.

Talks broke down between the two clubs and he is staying with the Championship side for now.

Adams had even completed the first part of his medical with Chelsea before the move collapsed.

That release clause became active following Leeds’ relegation from the Premier League.

It has been a chaotic couple of days for Chelsea, with the news about Adams another blow for the club.

Liverpool hijacked their pursuit of Moises Caicedo from Brighton, who will now pay £111m for the midfielder.

Although the Blues themselves are considering a bid again to try and land the Ecuador international.

The west London club themselves were looking to steal Romeo Lavia from under Liverpool’s noses.

However, their bid still fell short of Southampton’s valuation.

Teenager Carney Chuckwuemeka, who arrived from Aston Villa for £20m in 2022, is another possible option after impressing in pre-season.

Mateo Kovacic was sold to Man City this summer, while N’Golo Kante left on a free transfer.

Mason Mount was another departing midfielder, who joined Manchester United.
