Report: Leeds insiders think 'magnificent' Marsch signing will be club captain once Cooper goes

Being captain of Leeds United is always a big deal and according to The Athletic, that could be the next step for Tyler Adams.

The USA international has taken to Premier League football like a duck to water and impressed in the World Cup as well with some fine displays.

Adams was signed by Jesse Marsch in the summer. Brought in for his energy in the middle of the park, Adams has very much settled into proceedings at Elland Road quite nicely. Indeed, as a replacement for Kalvin Phillips, the USA star has adapted more than adequately.

Indeed, such has been his impression at the club that The Athletic reports today that some inside Elland Road believe they’ve got a future captain on their hands.

Adams, 23, is already considered a leader of the national team and it’s claimed here that he is seen as a potential skipper when Liam Cooper eventually decides to pass on the baton.

Dubbed ‘magnificent’ for a performance earlier in the season at Liverpool, Adams has certainly impressed pundits and fans alike since signing.

Whether or not Jesse Marsch will bestow the honour of club captain on him down the line, however, remains to be seen.

TBR’s View: Adams one of Leeds’ best signings

It’s so easy to get things wrong in the transfer market, especially when you are bringing in a number of players like Leeds did in the summer. However, they do appear to have got it right with Tyler Adams.

The midfielder looks a star in the making and it’s no surprise he’s impressed behind the scenes. Talk of him being made captain makes sense as well, given his performances and character displayed on the field.

Leeds will be looking to kick on now they’re back in action and with the City game behind them. Adams’ form, then, will be key to any good results being picked up.
