Why Chelsea pulled plug on Tyler Adams’ £20m move from Leeds after he’d completed medical



Chelsea have pulled the plug on their £20m (€23m/$25m) move for Tyler Adams despite the midfielder completing a medical at the club.The Blues had been in advanced talks over a deal for the USMNT international but pulled out on Friday leaving the 24-year-old to return to Leeds. The exact reason for Chelsea’s change of heart is not clear with the club denying it has anything to do with the ever-increasing price of main target Moises Caicedo. However, The Telegraph have reported that the potential record-breaking arrival of Caicedo could be the principal cause.Adams, who captained the USMNT in last year’s World Cup in Qatar, is now left in limbo and will be hoping to land at another Premier League clubWhile the transfer merry-go-round continues to whirl, Adams will be looking to recover from the injury that robbed him of the end of the last Premier League season and USMNT action this summer.
