Bournemouth have signed midfielder Tyler Adams from Leeds United for an undisclosed amount in excess of £20 million.

Bournemouth Signs Tyler Adams From Leeds United

Adams, 24, who has a five-year contract, only transferred from RB Leipzig to Leeds last summer.

But after the Elland Road club was demoted from the Premier League last year, he moved on.

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

“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 recognized in this transfer window by other clubs.”

Although it was first believed that Bournemouth had triggered a £20 million release clause in the player’s contract, BBC Sport has learned that Adams’ transfer fee is much higher than £20 million and does not include a release clause.

The 2022–23 season saw 26 appearances for Leeds from the American international.

He underwent surgery for a hamstring injury at the end of March, but he was unable to participate.

Adams appeared to be moving to Chelsea this summer, but negotiations between the Blues and Leeds, according to reports, fell down.
