CHELSEA’S £20million swoop for Leeds star Tyler Adams has broken down, according to reports.

The Blues had been willing to pay Adams’ release clause, but the American will now have to return to Leeds.

Adams, 24, joined Leeds from RB Leipzig in a £20m deal last summer.

Following the Whites’ relegation from the Premier League, a £20m release clause was triggered in his contract.

Chelsea offered the release clause in a bid to sign Adams.

But according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, the move has fallen through as “all parties” could not come to an agreement.

Adams is now expected to return to Leeds – but another club could look to trigger his release clause before the end of the transfer window.

The midfielder played 24 times as the Whites were relegated from the Premier League last term.

He missed the final 12 Prem matches with a hamstring injury and did not feature under Sam Allardyce.

Leeds got their Championship campaign underway last Sunday with a 2-2 draw against Cardiff City.

Adams did not feature, but was in attendance at Elland Road.

He was even spotted on the pitch at half-time, speaking to Leeds’ teenage midfielder Archie Gray.

Chelsea, meanwhile, remain desperate to bolster their midfield options.

The Blues are targeting Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia, but face competition from Liverpool for both.

Jurgen Klopp’s side agreed a Premier League record £111m fee for Caicedo earlier today.

But the Brighton ace has reportedly snubbed the Reds as he wants to join Chelsea.
