Report: Adryan to arrive in Leeds today

Brazilian playmaker Adryan is reportedly flying in to Leeds today to complete a move from Cagliari to Leeds United.

Italian press reports indicate that Adryan will leave Cagliari today and sign for Leeds United.

The talented 19-year-old would be an exciting signing for the Championship club and could prove to be a very shrewd swoop.

Adryan made a name for himself playing for Brazil in the Under-17 South American Championships and Under-17 World Cup and he was briefly linked to Manchester United.

But the midfielder opted to stay at Flamengo and continue his development before joining Serie A side Cagliari last January.

It had seemed that Adryan would be a starter in Italy's top flight this season but new coach Zdenek Zeman is reportedly ready to let him leave.

According to Italian reports, Adryan is happy to join Leeds and will board a flight later today to meet Massimo Cellino, who he knows from the entrepreneur's time in charge of Cagliari.

Adryan is expected to be shown around Elland Road, to meet club officials and possibly to undergo a medical within the next two days, allowing a deal to be completed.
