Tyler Adams, a midfielder for Leeds United, was a favorite of Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper, but he was hesitant to sign him this summer.

More information regarding the American’s tumultuous summer has been revealed in an article by The Athletic.

There was a chance Tyler Adams might stay as players left Elland Road as swiftly as they could after their relegation from the Premier League.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who was acquired from RB Leipzig for about £20 million, was one of the few bright spots of the previous campaign.

He was the classic Jesse Marsch acquisition, but a season-ending injury prevented him from playing.

Adams could only watch as Leeds fell into the bottom three and coach after coach failed to turn things around.

Adams was coveted by a number of teams, notably Nottingham Forest, whose coach Steve Cooper was a major fan.
Adams, though, ultimately found himself with Bournemouth on the south coast after a transfer to Chelsea fell through.

If Cooper had not had a disagreement with the captain of the USA’s international team, a transfer to the City Ground might have been in the cards.

Adams is adored by Cooper at Leeds.
According to The Athletic’s source, Cooper was hesitant to sign Adams this summer because of his injury history.
Adams has been sidelined for almost six months due to a hamstring ailment that he is now dealing with.
Despite having many adductor issues in the past, this is the first significant injury of his professional career.

Adams is unquestionably a Premier League caliber player, thus his continued presence at Leeds would have been extremely beneficial to Daniel Farke.

However, because of his contract’s release clause, it was never anticipated that he would play another season at Elland Road.

On the day before the deadline, Steve Cooper chose Ibrahim Sangare rather than bringing Cooper from Leeds.

The signing of the Ivorian international is tremendously intriguing and has the potential to make him one of the league’s top midfielders.

There’s no reason to force Adams into play right now, but Bournemouth are still waiting to see Adams in action.

Before he makes his Cherries debut, getting him back to full fitness must be the priority.
