Sources: Major update on Tyler Adams' Leeds United future

Leeds United are likely to find it hard to keep hold of midfielder Tyler Adams following relegation to the Championship, sources have told Football Insider.

However, the Whites will hold a degree of control with the 24-year-old’s long-term contract meaning it will take a big-money fee to prise him away from Elland Road.

A well-placed source has told Football Insider that Adams is keen to continue to play at the highest level after his impressive first season in the Premier League.

It is believed Bundesliga clubs are monitoring the former RB Leipzig midfielder ahead of a possible return to Germany in the summer window.

Premier League sides are also likely to express an interest in the United States international.

Football Insider revealed last month (25 May) that Man United are among the teams keeping tabs on Adams, with multiple other outfits believed to be interested.

The midfielder’s current contract at Elland Road runs until 2027 following his reported £20million arrival from Leipzig last summer (2022).

He made 24 Premier League starts in 26 total appearances for Leeds in the 2022-23 campaign, amounting to 2293 minutes of action.

The former New York Red Bulls ace captained the United States at the World Cup in Qatar and has made 36 total appearances for his country.

According to FBRef, Adams earns a wage of £55,000-a-week.

Football Insider revealed on Friday (2 June) that fellow Leeds midfielder Brenden Aaronson is set to quit the club this summer with a Bundesliga move also possible.

The Whites are currently without a manager after confirming Sam Allardyce will not be kept on for the 2023-24 campaign.

They will learn their first Championship opponents when the fixtures are released later this month (22 June).
