RB LEIPZIG star Tyler Adams is undergoing a medical at Leeds United ahead of a £20million transfer.
The Elland Road side are looking to replace Kalvin Phillips in their midfield.
The England international, 26, signed a six-year contract at Manchester City after leaving Leeds in a £45m deal.
Now boss Jesse Marsch is wasting no time in trying to fill that gap after swooping for his fellow American.
Adams, 23, made his name at New York Red Bulls in the MLS and played under the Leeds manager there.
That led to a move to Europe to the USA side’s sister-club RB Leipzig in Germany three years ago – where Marsch was also briefly in charge at the start of last term.
