BOURNEMOUTH, England – Tyler Adams, the captain of the United States, has completed a transfer from Leeds to Bournemouth.
The club announced Saturday that Adams signed a five-year contract with Bournemouth after a one-year tenure with Leeds, which ended with hamstring surgery in March and relegation from the Premier League.
The clubs did not disclose the transfer fee, but British media reported it was up to 24 million pounds ($30.5 million).
The 24-year-old midfielder was linked to Chelsea early in the summer season, but the London club spent heavily on Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia.
“We’re happy to have welcomed Tyler to the club and he is a player we’ve respected for a long time," said Bournemouth CEO Neill Blake.
It's been widely documented how much other clubs have recognized his talents in this transfer window, so to have him sign for AFC Bournemouth shows our ambition.
Tyler is an exciting player who has plenty of experience for a 24-year-old, and we’re looking forward to working with him as he will be a great addition to our squad.”
