Tyler Adams set to sign for Blues
It is believed Adams will complete the main stages of his medical with the West Londoners today ahead of a move.
Adams had already undergone preliminary medical tests with Chelsea on Wednesday and will become the club’s eighth signing of a busy summer at Stamford Bridge with another three weeks of the window remaining.
The New Yorker was a rare bright spark in a dismal season for Leeds last season and will be a huge loss to new manager Daniel Farke who aims to guide the Whites back to the Premier League at the first attempt.
