Leeds United midfield target Tyler Adams may be made available on loan, according to The Athletic’s Phil Hay.
Adams, 23, only started 12 Bundesliga games for Leipzig last season, and it seems he’s been deemed surplus to requirements for the upcoming campaign.
He too is a defensive midfielder, one who plays like a ‘quarterback‘ in the words of former boss Julian Nagelsmann.
Hay wrote on Twitter that ‘Leeds United want to ramp up incoming business again’ as Phillips seals his exit.
And ‘Leipzig are considering’ letting Adams, ‘one of Leeds’ midfield options’, leave the club on loan.
The American is expected to move on this summer as he seeks regular game time ahead of the Qatar World Cup.
Leeds would surely be delighted if they could get this one done. They could sign a strong replacement for Phillips without necessarily having to spend any immediate money on a transfer fee.
An option or obligation to buy might be included in the deal, but that wouldn’t be a consideration until next summer.
Adams may still be fairly young, but he’s also made 14 appearances in European competition during his time at Leipzig, so he would bring some pedigree.
Compatriot Marsch has already stated, back in 2019 when he was assistant to Ralf Rangnick at Leipzig, that he believes that the player has a ‘massive ceiling‘, and he’ll hope to unlock that potential at Elland Road.
