Leeds United signing Adryan: I need to play

Brazil Fans 2

Leeds United signing Adryan has spoke of his need to play.

Brazilian prospect Adryan has spoken of his delight at being at Leeds but says he needs game time to really show what he can do.

The attacker featured for Leeds under-21 side against Ipswich Town yesterday, and said he was not disenchanted by the defeat.

He told Leeds United TV: "We lost but we played well, and fast. (It's) my first game with Leeds, we are working so hard this week to play."

He went onto discuss his need to play, if he is to shows fans what he can do, rather than trying to sum up his abilities in a quickfire response.

"I'm so happy but I need to work and play, they (the fans) are so happy with my presence here, and I need to play."

High hopes are expected of Adryan who is a Brazil under-20 international, who caretaker manager Neil Redfearn praised last week, telling the Yorkshire Post:

"He’s got great feet and terrific touch. He looks like he’s 12 years old but there’s a real player there, an exciting player."
