Tyler Adams transfer to Leeds United: Reunion with Jesse Marsch is underway as the club replaces Kalvin Phillips


After losing favor with new coach Domenico Tedesco at the end of the season, American midfielder Tyler Adams could leave for the Premier League. Adams did not start RB Leipzig the most important games of the season, including the DFP Pokal final and the Europa League semi-finals, showing Tedesco’s lack of confidence in him. Although the moves should be carefully considered by Adams due to his importance to the club. United States The United States men’s national team will participate in the next World Cup. He’s a coveted player who could find more consistent minutes elsewhere.

Leeds United Leeds United and Leipzig agreed a £20m deal for the 23-year-old midfielder on Monday, CBS Sports transfer guru Fabrizio Romano reports. This amount also includes an additional fee, which is not much more than the 12 million pounds that RB Leipzig were seeking for Adams. Thirty-three percent of the transfer fee paid to RB Leipzig will be sent to New York Red Bulls as transfer compensation. under a buyout clause negotiated when Adams went to Germany in 2019.

After Kalvin Phillips has joined Manchester CityJesse Marsch has been looking for the best way to replace him, with all roads leading to Manchester City. Marc Roca and Adams. Considering Adams’ age, Leeds will have the opportunity for him to increase his value going forward.

The deal went quickly, with Leeds keen to avoid Adams attracting interest elsewhere. Everton was cited as one of the interested teams. All that needs to happen for things to become official is for Adams to get his medical now and put pen to paper.

As well as being able to be deployed as a central or defensive midfielder, Adams has the bonus of being strong enough defensively to play as a right-back when needed, like Stuart Dallas. Adams is good enough to read the game on the field and can give Marsch another coach on the team.

Whether it’s lining up the midfield to obstruct the passing lanes or diving for a last-minute tackle, it won’t take much for Adams to endear himself to Leeds United supporters. Adams would also be the third rookie Marsch has coached in the past, along with fellow American, the former France national team player. Brenden Aaronson as well as Rasmus Kristensen. Playing on the United States Men’s National Team doesn’t hurt either.

Here’s what you need to know:

Another meeting with Marsch

Adams could reunite with his former coach, Jesse Marsch, who not only oversaw his development in Major League Soccer with the New York Times, but also with the France national team club. Red BullsHe also coached Adams at RB Leipzig last season, before being fired in December. On the pitch, Adams has a limited passing range, opting for safer passes rather than pushing possession forward, but he’s a great shield for a back line and could understandably be the man to try and replace. Phillips.

Being able to work with a manager who not only knows what he can do – but more importantly what he can’t do – is key to Adams’ success should he move on to the Premier League. With Leeds having already added Kristensen from RB Leipzig at right-back, a move from Adams could see Stuart Dallas return to left-back, where he was previously signed. Junior Firpo struggled last season.

Phillips’ future

Without Phillips, Leeds United have a unique challenge as a single player cannot replace what they were doing in midfield. Not only did Phillips cover a ton of ground in midfield, but he was also capable of launching attacks on his own with precise passing. The closest Premier League comparison is Declan Rice of West Ham, which is out of reach for Leeds, with bigger clubs interested in him. So Marsch and the board had to get creative in reconfiguring the midfield.

Roca has already been added from Bayern Munich, and Adams would join him to create the defensive shield. In front of them, it looks like Marsch is aiming for a switch to a 4-2-2-2 as a defender. Raphinha is likely to leave for Barcelona Where chelsea this summer. Aaronson, Mateusz KlichDarko Gaybi, Daniel James, Jack Harrisonand Rodrigo can all play in midfield, supporting the forwards. Such a change will not only help Leeds maintain pressure and retain their form better, but it will also allow their four forwards more space to be more fluid in transition.

Another area where it is useful is depth. Leeds were an injury-hit side last season because pressing demands a lot from the whole team. Not only will Marsch be able to change large parts of the squad as the Premier League will have five substitutes, but he will have more room to rotate, which will keep his players fresh.

The United States of America England

Leeds are fast becoming a destination for players who have come through Major League Soccer and it’s not just thanks to Marsch. Jack Harrison was recruited by the Chicago Fire and exchanged for New York City F.C. in 2016. He also played college at Wake Forest. After taking the league by storm, scoring 14 goals and assisting ten more in 55 starts, Harrison secured a transfer to Manchester City in January 2018. While Harrison was not expected to hang on At City, with the team having incredible depth and no room for him, Championship loans helped Harrison find a home with Leeds United.

With Aaronson starting his career with Philadephia… Union and Adams with the New York Red Bulls, Leeds could have three starters next season who started their careers in MLS. It’s quite a trajectory because miguel Almiron has carried the MLS banner to the Premier League, and it’s time to recognize the growth of MLS as a league, a league that can produce talent for the rest of the world.

On top of all that, the San Francisco 49ers ownership group, 49ers Enterprises, owns part of the club.
