Leeds United signing: "One of the most important weeks of my life"

Leeds United's new signing, Adryan, has said that this could be one of the most important weeks of his life.

Leeds United newboy Adryan has commented on how the next week will be one of the biggest of his life, after joining the club. 

The recent Whites' addition has caused a huge amount of excitement after arriving at Elland Road and will be hoping to impress on his debut. 

The Brazilian playmaker has been touted as one of the brightest young stars coming through in his homeland and it appears that he is looking forward to show what he can do when he wears a Leeds shirt for the first time at the weekend. 

He took to Twitter yesterday to post: "Tomorrow starts one of the most important weeks of my life, the week of the game ! Thanks God for everything ! @LUFC #WeAreLeeds #MOT."

Adryan has been hailed as the 'next Kaka' in Brazil and, if the reports of his talent are true, then he can be a player who can spark the Championship side's season into life. 

The 20-year-old joins Leeds with the club entering a new era, after the sacking of David Hockaday last week. 

No permanent manager has been appointed yet, but there is still a feeling that they will be able to push on now the inexperienced head-coach has departed. 

Leeds have won just two of their opening five Championship games but, after bringing in 15 signings in the summer, the squad will be hoping to kick-on. 

Adryan is arguably the most eye-catching of all their recruits and, if he is to have a happy ending to the week which he places so much importance on, then he will need to show his ability against Birmingham City, who his new team face on Saturday.

It presents a winnable opportunity and, if Leeds can pick up the three points, then the positive feeling around Elland Road will only increase. 

Adryan could be in action for the first time for Leeds today when he plays for the under-21 side against Ipswich Town.
