Reliable transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has announced Inter Milan are not currently in talks to sign Leeds defender Tyler Adams, despite reports to the contrary claiming so recently.
Interest in him was sparked through a series of formidable appearances as captain of the USMNT during the Qatar World Cup which saw the US progress to the knockout stages where they were beaten by the Netherlands.
Writing for his substack on Caught Offside, Romano was quick to dismiss the speculation around the American’s future at Leeds.
“Inter Milan are not in talks to sign Tyler Adams as things stand,” he said.
“I’m sure Leeds will try to keep him, they love Tyler as a player but also I’m told they love his attitude in the dressing room.
“It always depends on the proposals, we will see; too early to say. But I think he’s very good player with a top future.”
Due to Romano’s general reliability where transfer gossip is concerned, the fact he has stressed Leeds’ insistence on holding onto Adams in the upcoming January window will be welcome news to the Leeds faithful.
As with any international tournament, a series of strong performances by a player can be enough to gain the attention of a whole host of clubs, as seen recently with Adams’ impressive displays for the USMNT.
When the Inter Milan rumours began to circulate, it became a matter of when, not if, Adams would be leaving Yorkshire for many fans.
With this development however, those fears can be mostly put to rest.
As a 23-year-old Adams still has plenty of potential to develop further as a player, with regular experience playing in the Premier League being the best way to do it.
Long may his time in West Yorkshire continue.
