After much speculation, Leeds United has completed the signing of Tyler Adams from RB Leipzig on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy next summer. Adams, who only turned 23 back in February, made his international debut for the United States during this summer’s Gold Cup and was part of the squad that reached the final of the tournament where they lost 2-0 to Mexico despite taking an early lead through Gyasi Zardes’ header.
According to Beton.ng, the 23-year-old American has signed a four-year contract with the Premier League club, becoming their first January signing. Adams had been with German side RB Leipzig since January 2019, when he joined from MLS side New York Red Bulls. He made 28 appearances for Leipzig, scoring one goal. Adams has also been capped eight times by the USA. Leeds will be his fourth club, having previously played for PSG in France and Columbia University in America before joining the Red Bulls. His last appearance was in December when he scored against FC Bayern Munich to help RB Leipzig to victory in a DFB Pokal match.
What type of player is he?
Tyler Adams is an American soccer player who plays as a right-back or a defensive midfielder for Bundesliga club RB Leipzig and the United States national team. He is known for his speed, stamina, and work ethic on the field. He was named captain of the U-20 USMNT in 2017 and was also voted by supporters to be on the 2018 CONCACAF Gold Cup roster, where he captained Team USA to victory in their first game of the tournament against Guyana.
Why is this a great signing?
Tyler Adams is a versatile young player who can play multiple positions, which will be a valuable asset for Leeds United. He is also a hard worker and has a great attitude, which will fit in well with the club’s culture. Additionally, he has experience playing at a high level in Europe, which will be beneficial for the team. His signing would also provide some much-needed depth to the roster and would help solve one of their main problems of not having enough depth on the bench when players get injured or suspended. This is a very good signing for Leeds United because it provides them with both needed depth on their roster as well as versatility that they don’t currently have.
