Chelsea activated the 24-year-old’s £20 million relegation release clause at Leeds prior to the upcoming Premier League season. Adams traveled to London to finish his physical, but the arrangement fell through at the eleventh hour.
The United States international is reportedly set to return to Leeds after the parties concerned were unable to come to an agreement to approve the transfer.
After Leeds was demoted to the Championship, names like Newcastle United, Aston Villa, and Chelsea have been mentioned in connection with Adams.
Before signing priority target Sandro Tonali, the midfielder was on Newcastle’s “longer list” of midfield transfer targets. The fact that he could play on the right of midfield or in defense is another quality that attracted The Magpies.

Adams joined Leeds from RB Leipzig last summer and went on to make 24 Premier League appearances before having his season cut short due to a thigh injury.

Although Newcastle are still likely to miss out on Adams this summer, the player spoke very highly of the club and St James’ Park in particular when asked about his favorite place to play football.

“Newcastle was bumping,” he told the New York Red Bulls Podcast.

“They’re doing things the right way and I think they have the recognition now of ‘our team is good and Champions League is in our sights.’

“They came out and there was a full [flag] display. The fans were crazy – that was probably the loudest. It’s never ending [the crowd] you look up and it’s just black. The fans keep going and you’re staring into an abyss.”
