Premier League side Bournemouth have waned on the idea of signing Tyler Adams from Leeds United in the past 24 hours.
The USMNT captain, who performed admirably for Leeds United during their disappointing relegation campaign last season, had been expected to swap Yorkshire for the South Coast club this week.
Tyler Adams set for Leeds United stay?
Adams had a well-reported $25.5m relegation release clause in his contract at Elland Road which Chelsea and Bournemouth both triggered in the past seven days. The Blues pulled out of a transfer on Friday after hearing of their attempts to lure Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia to Stamford Bridge had been successful before the Cherries made their move this week.
According to The Athletic’s Phil Hay, however, there are growing murmurs that Adams’ release clause has now expired which has led to the American returning to Leeds’ Thorp Arch training complex.
It remains unclear whether or not Bournemouth will come back with a bid that would need to exceed the $25.5m price tag for Adams or if their interest only lasted whilst they could get the 24-year-old for a cut-price deal.
