Former Leeds midfielder Tyler Adams is injured again with the latest update that he will be out till around February.
The USMNT midfielder was struggling with injury in the middle of last season. He reportedly went to the 2022 World Cup carrying an injury. His absence saw Leeds plummet down the table, and eventually saw the Whites relegated. Adams will now be ruled out till mid-February, mid-March according to The Athletic.
He took the offseason and most of pre season to recover and was expected to stay for the 2023/24 campaign. However, Chelsea agreed a deal but later backed out before Bournemouth agreed a fee in the region of £23million plus add-ons.
Since joining the Cherries, he has only played one EFL cup game in September – a 20 minute substitute appearance.
During the summer window, Daniel Farke was critical about Leeds player contracts – Tyler Adams had a release clause that saw him end up at Bournemouth:
“After relegation it’s normal sometimes there are questions. Players are used to playing at Premier League level. [We need to] Learn the lessons of this window. How we create the contracts for the future. My opinions, as a club we have to be in the driving seat.”
“We should not do this. We are Leeds United. I want players who are fully committed to the full length of their contract without a thought for exit clauses. In the future, we have to ensure we are always in control of contracts.”
