Tyler Adams did return to field training on Thursday for his new club AFC Bournemouth but isn’t expected to feature in competitive action anytime soon.
Adams joined Bournemouth last week from Leeds United, ending a one-season spell at Elland Road for the Yorkshire club. However, the U.S. men’s national team midfielder remains sidelined due to a hamstring injury which forced him to miss the final few months of the 2022-23 English Premier League campaign.
Adams was seen working with his new teammates at Bournemouth’s training ground on Thursday which is a positive sign after a long time away from action. Cherries boss Andoni Iraola isn’t planning to have Adams though, with no official timetable determined for his club debut.
“They both need time,” Iraola said about Adams and fellow acquisition Alex Scott. “The club signed the players knowing they will be out for some games, I think Tyler should be earlier than Alex.
“Alex will spend more time out, neither of them are close to playing.”
Adams made 26 combined appearances for Leeds United last season under Jesse Marsch and Javi Gracia following his transfer from RB Leipzig last summer. He finished the campaign as one of the Lilywhites’ top performers despite missing the final two months of the season through injury.
His arrival at Bournemouth should help fill the gap left by Jefferson Lerma’s move to Crystal Palace.
The Cherries face off with Tottenham on Saturday in their final match of the August schedule.
