According to sources, Leeds United are concerned that if they are relegated, they will have little chance of keeping Tyler Adams.
The 24-year-old American central midfielder joined Leeds from RB Leipzig last summer for a fee worth up to £20 million, including add-ons.
His two-month absence due to a hamstring injury has coincided with a terrible Leeds run that has put them in the relegation zone heading into the season’s final game.
According to sources, Adams is sought after by numerous clubs in the Premier League and other top European leagues, thus, Leeds are unlikely to hold on to him if they are relegated.
He is one of the few Leeds players who can command a fee of at least £35 million, which will be necessary if they don’t receive Premier League broadcasting money the following season.

Adams’ dynamism and intensity in the middle have pleased Man United’s recruitment squad, who are among the teams keeping an eye on him.
The midfielder joined Elland Road last summer, and his current deal runs through 2027. In 26 appearances for Leeds this season, he has made 24 Premier League starts, totaling 2293 minutes of play.
In the first half of the season, his tackle and interception statistics were among the best in the Premier League. Adams also traveled to the World Cup in Qatar with his country’s team, leading them to the round of 16 as he served as captain.
Before the Netherlands defeated the USA in the World Cup semifinals, he played the full 90 minutes of each game.
