Tyler Adams injury update: American close to making debut for Bournemouth after long lay off

The 24-year-old is yet to make his debut for the Cherries since arriving in a £23million move from Leeds United in the summer, after being sidelined with a long-term hamstring injury.

However, the American is edging closer to making his Bournemouth debut as his new manager, Andoni Iraola, provided an update on his fitness.

I think the only one that is not recovered so far is Tyler Adams, who won’t be available for the Brighton game but he has started training partially with the group,” said Iraola.

“There is a chance of having him in the next week or two weeks or so. Tyler is really close because once you start training partially with the group, it’s a matter of sensations, and if you are physically good enough.

“He has a very good physical base. So I think it will take not a long time to see Tyler with the team.”

The USMNT midfielder has not played since March due to hamstring surgery, but he will be eager to make an impression at Vicarage Road once he returns from injury, following being relegated with Leeds last season.

The player is nearing a return from injury and will be looking to make his debut for his new team in the Carabao Cup against Stoke on September 27 and the Premier League against Arsenal on September 30.

Iraola also gave an update on Alex Scott: “Alex is completely different, it’s the first week he’s been outside doing physical work, that’s his first step in the right direction but he’s far away from Tyler.”
