The move is almost done and Adams is flying to the UK to finish his medical. Leeds United’s new manager Jesse Marsch reportedly had a big hand to play in the transfer as he had worked with Adams before.

The American coach was also instrumental in the signing of Brenden Aaronson as Leeds United acquired another USMNT star. It seems like this won’t be the end of the transfer window for the Premier League club as they are also linked with a move with Feyenoord star, Luis Sinisterra.

“He was very liked here, he’s a really good player. [He is] a fine character. It hurts to say goodbye. But you have to be honest with each other. If a player is unhappy with his playing time–we have an extremely large number of players in the centre–then you have to understand him and fulfill his wishes,” Tedesco said.

It’ll be interesting to see how Adams’ move to the Premier League works out in the end, and whether he can handle the competition in England.
