Adams wants a move to Leeds

According to Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports, American defensive midfielder Tyler Adams ‘really wants’ a loan move to Leeds United.

Jacobs has reportedly already spoken to manager Jesse Marsch, with whom he played both at New York Red Bulls and RB Leipzig.

Marsch is said to want another midfielder in addition to the summer signing of Marc Roca from Bayern Munich, who is not seen as a direct replacement to Kalvin Phillips, who has a move to Manchester City imminent.

A loan move may suit all parties involved. With Leipzig signing Xavier Schlager, he may not find himself playing often next season, as he has struggled for form in the Bundesliga. With the United States playing in the World Cup, qualifying behind Canada and Mexico, the player himself will want to get game time so that he can stake a claim for Gregg Berhalter’s squad. 

Leeds United need another defensive midfielder with Kalvin Phillips leaving for Manchester City: a signing there needs to be made, and a loan move would be preferred since he has struggled for form: no large upfront fee will have to be paid for a potentially poor signing.

Mo Camara of RB Salzburg remains the other, costlier, option for a defensive midfield signing, and TeamTalk in their ‘Euro Paper Talk‘ suggested that he has ‘given his agreement’ to join the club, although they failed to put a source for this claim. This should therefore be taken with a pinch of salt.

Camara would likely cost around £25 million, while Brighton are also heavily interested in the Malian, meaning a battle could be on between the two clubs for the talented midfielder’s signature.
