'Will fly to England later today': Phil Hay claims 'special' player is about to complete Leeds move

Tyler Adams will fly to England later today to wrap up his move to Leeds United, according to Phil Hay.

The Athletic‘s Leeds correspondent also claimed the Whites are closing in on Luis Sinisterra.

The Whites have landed Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca and Darko Gyabi.

Leeds are also looking to replace Kalvin Phillips, now at Manchester City, and Raphinha, who also looks set to leave.

And it looks as though their replacements will come in through the Elland Road doors pretty soon.

Hay, writing in The Athletic, has now provided a development on the Adams to Leeds state of play.

Leeds and RB Leipzig have reportedly agreed the terms of Adams’ proposed switch to the Premier League.

Negotiations between the clubs apparently reached an advanced stage yesterday.

This allowed Leeds to begin planning a medical and make preparations to complete the formalities of the move.

Adams’ switch to Elland Road is understood to be costing in the region of £20million.

And the 23-year-old is apparently in line to complete his move to Leeds by the end of the week.

Likewise, the Whites hope to have Feyenoord’s Sinisterra on their books in the next few days.

Leeds are due to fly out on their tour of Australia this weekend.

“The ceiling for him is massive”

Adams has impressed for club and country, making 102 appearances for Leipzig and winning 18 United States caps.

He has also worked with Jesse Marsch before.

The coach gave Adams his debut as a 16-year-old at New York Red Bulls.

The pair were then reunited at Leipzig in 2019 when Marsch was Ralf Rangnick’s assistant manager.

“I think he’s exceeded my expectations, our expectations,” Marsch told the Bundesliga website of Adams three years ago.

“There’s been some talk, like I’ve done so much to help Tyler, adapt and do well here. I don’t think it’s hurt, but Tyler is the reason Tyler has been successful.

“He’s a special person, he’s a special personality, he’s a special talent and the ceiling for him is massive. Massive here in Leipzig and in the Bundesliga and beyond.

“So I’m proud to be connected with him and to have played a role in his development and I can’t wait to see where he goes from here.”
