Tyler Adams will have Leeds United medical today ahead of £20m move

According to Kicker, RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams will today undergo his Leeds United medical.

The US international will sign a long-term contract with the Premier League club, where Adams will reunite with compatriot Jesse Marsch following the departure of Kalvin Phillips to Manchester City.

RB Leipzig will receive around €23m including bonuses for Adams, who will end his three-year stay at Leipzig after joining the Bundesliga club for €2.5m from New York Red Bulls in January 2019.

Leipzig were open to allowing Adams to leave as they look to cut down their squad size. They’ve also signed Austria international Xaver Schlager from Wolfsburg for €12m, who can act as a replacement for the American central-midfielder.

Adams has played 101 games for RB Leipzig, scoring two and creating four. The 23-year-old also came on as a substitute in Leipzig’s DFB Pokal final win against Freiburg last season, their first major trophy.
