Andoni Iraola has praised Tyler Adams as a ‘really good player’ with the Leeds midfielder understood to be undergoing a medical at Bournemouth.
Bournemouth look set to win the race to sign the USA international, who had been close to completing a transfer to Chelsea before the west Londoners pulled out of a deal.
Brighton and Aston Villa are among the clubs to have also been linked with the 24-year-old, who Iraola believes can make an impact in the Cherries midfield – should a deal be finalised.
“I think it’s a player that right now is not our player,” the Bournemouth boss said at a pre-match press conference ahead of this weekend’s clash with Liverpool.
“So we have to wait, I think that you know that the club is working towards signing someone there in the midfield, but we have to wait until everything is complete.
“He’s a really good player.
“He has performed in the Champions League, national team experience.
“But I don’t want to go too far because right now it’s not our player.”
