Newcastle United have been monitoring Tyler Adams following his superb season at the heart of the Leeds United midfield.

That is according to a report from The Times, which looks into which players are likely to move on if the various teams in the current battle are relegated from the Premier League this season.

Leeds, of course, had a chance to move five points clear of the drop zone heading into their last two home games. However, two embarrassing performances have left Javi Gracia’s men in the jaws of the bottom three.

Certainly, any hope that the loss to Crystal Palace can be labelled an anomaly has evaporated. The side were even more woeful on Monday against Liverpool.

There are a couple of mitigating factors. And one of those is that Leeds have been without Tyler Adams since just before the international break.

The USMNT international has proved to be an inspired signing in midfield. He seems to be one of the few leaders within the squad. And he provides the side with real balance.

Losing him to injury was a big blow. And should we get relegated and Adams not be ready by the end of the season, there is a chance that he has already made his final appearance for Leeds.

We would not be surprised to see him leave this summer. And The Times suggests that Newcastle are one of the sides who want to sign the 24-year-old.

The Magpies have enjoyed an unbelievable season, which could culminate in qualifying for next year’s Champions League.

They have not invested in the superstar players. Instead, they have gone after those who have huge potential to improve further.

Adams has definitely shown glimpses of what he can do in his first year in the Premier League. He has been ‘special‘ at times.

And if Leeds go down, we are going to struggle to make a huge profit on the £20 million we spent on him in the first place. So you can understand why clubs are circling.
