Leeds United fans are delighted with their newest signing.

The Whites have been rather active in the summer transfer window so far, though, recent developments have all-but forced their latest signing.

The departure of Kalvin Phillips left Leeds with an almightly hole in their midfield, and to address that, Jesse Marsch has snapped up fellow Americal Tyler Adams from former club RB Leipzig.

Adams is a 23-year-old midfielder who arrives having become a key part of Leipzig’s plans over recent years, making as many as 75 Bundesliga appearances in three years.

He also brings international experience, winning 30 caps for the United States to date, and he is one of the most highly-rated players of his generation in his country.

Adams arrives on a £20million deal, with Leeds reinvesting a significant chunk of the money they received from the Phillips deal.

And Leeds fans appear to be pretty pleased with the club’s business.

Here’s what some fans had to say on social media.

@SmithLeedsUtd - “All USA Aren’t We..... xxx”
