PHOTOS: Adryan in action during first Leeds United appearance

Adryan has been pictured in action in his first appearance for the Leeds United under 21s today.

Leeds United's exciting new Brazilian talent Adryan has been pictured in action for his new club today.

The loan-signing from Flamengo has caused great anticipation around Elland Road, after being hailed as one of the future stars of football in his homeland.

Adryan has already drawn comparisons to Kaka in his burgeoning career and he will now be aiming to prove his talent in England after completing his move to Leeds.

The 20-year-old had his first chance to impress for the Whites in their under-21 fixture against Ipswich Town earlier today and seemed to fit into his new surroundings well - completing a number of fine pieces of skill. 

Adryan will be hoping that his display was good enough to catch the eye of the Leeds management team, as he tries to break into the first-team starting line-up. 

Yesterday the Brazilian tweeted that this week was set to become one of the biggest of his life as he focuses on making an impression in Yorkshire.

Leeds take on Birmingham City on Saturday and, if Adryan is to play, he will be looking to show that the hype around his arrival was worthwhile.
