Leeds United news: Tyler Adams set to sign five-year contract at Elland Road

Leeds United are set to finalise and announce the signing of RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams.

ESPN journalist Tom Hamilton has reported that the American international will put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract at Elland Road to link up once again with Jesse Marsch.

The Whites will replace Kalvin Phillips, who has had his big-money move to Manchester City finally confirmed this week as Victor Orta puts his foot on the gas.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, ESPN reporter Hamilton shared that Adams will be committing his long-term future to West Yorkshire with the move.

“Believe Tyler Adams is signing a long-term contract with Leeds, understood to be a five-year deal,” he wrote.

That followed the news that he has already verbally agreed to everything ahead of arrival in England today.

Here We Go.

This one is done now, and as soon as the ink is dry on that contract, the announcement is coming.

Adams may be at Elland Road as we speak with the media duties to complete before everything can be put out into the open from both clubs.

Leeds and Orta are moving very quickly given that the squad jets out to Australia at the end of the week for the pre-season tour that includes three big games.

With Adams basically done, attention could soon switch to Feyenoord winger Luis Sinisterra, who is also on the verge of signing on the dotted line in LS11.

Midfield has been a real problem area for years now, and although Phillips has gone, we now have Adams along with Marc Roca who can hopefully bring stability as well as consistency with no injuries.

Both have committed themselves to multi-year contracts too, something which shows us they are ready for the fight, and ready to become heroes at Elland Road.
