AFC Bournemouth have signed United States captain Tyler Adams from Leeds United.
Therefore, Adams will now wear the No 18 shirt having agreed a five-year contract to become Bournemouth‘s seventh signing of the summer.
“He is a player we’ve admired for a long time,” chief executive Neill Blake told the club’s official website.
“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.”
Moreover, Adams, who was also linked with Chelsea this summer, made 24 Premier League appearances last season after joining Leeds from RB Leipzig.
A versatile midfielder, he led Leeds players for tackles, making 87, as well as creating 24 chances, making 35 interceptions and ending the season with a pass accuracy of over 82 per cent.
Before joining Leeds, the 24-year-old spent three seasons in Germany with Leipzig, helping them reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League and winning the DFB-Pokal.
He started his career at New York Red Bulls and was in 2022 named the US Soccer Player of the Year.
Apparently, Adams will hope to make his Bournemouth debut at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday 26 August.
