Bournemouth have signed midfielder Tyler Adams from Leeds United after meeting his £20m release clause.
Adams, 24, who signed a five-year contract, only joined Leeds from RB Leipzig on a five-year contract last summer.
The release clause came into effect following the Elland Road club’s relegation from the Premier League last season.
“Signing him for AFC Bournemouth shows our ambition as a club,” Cherries chief executive Neill Blake said.
“We are delighted to have brought Tyler to the club and he is a player we have admired for a long time.
“It has been widely documented how much his talents have been recognized in this transfer window by other clubs.”
The United States international made 26 appearances for Leeds during the 2022-23 campaign.
However, he missed the game after undergoing surgery on a hamstring injury at the end of March.
Adams looked set to move to Chelsea this summer but Talks have reportedly broken down between the Blues and Leeds.
Blake added: “Tyler is an exciting player with a lot of experience for someone who is only 24 years old and we are looking forward to working with him as he is a player we know will be a great addition. to our team.”
Adams is manager Andoni Iraola’s seventh signing of the summer and will form part of a new-look midfield alongside England U20 star Alex Scott, 19, who signed from Bristol City earlier this month for a reported £25m.
Bournemouth’s other midfield signings include Ivory Coast Hamed Traore22, from Sassuolo, and Netherlands winger Justin Kluivert24, from Rome.
The Cherries, who opened their Premier League campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to West Ham before losing 3-1 at Liverpool on Saturday, finished 15th last season under former boss Gary O’Neil.
