United States men’s national team captain Tyler Adams will be out of action until next year after he undergoes a second surgery on his hamstring, his manager at club Bournemouth confirmed on Friday.

The midfielder underwent surgery on his hamstring after an injury in March while playing for Leeds United, then had a six-month layoff before joining Bournemouth for a Sept. 27 match against Stoke City in the Carabao Cup. He hasn’t played since.

Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola revealed on Sept. 30 that Adams was set for another lengthy spell on the sidelines, and on Friday confirmed the 24-year-old will likely be sidelined until February.

“When we talked two weeks ago, one of the options, after Tyler’s feelings once he played cup game, was that he had to solve this problem once and for all,” Iraola told a news conference. “He will have surgery and will be out at least three or four months.

“From the previous surgery he wasn’t feeling well, he was improving then having a setback then improving, something didn’t go very well and he will have to have it again.”

Adams is set to miss the USMNT’s Concacaf Nations League home-and-away quarterfinal series against Trinidad and Tobago in November. The winner of the series will qualify for the Nations League Finals next March and the 2024 Copa America, which will be hosted in the U.S., in summer 2024.

Adams was the captain of the U.S. team at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and was voted the 2022 U.S. Soccer Male Player of the Year after also being a finalist in 2018 and 2020.
