Leeds United attacking midfielder Adryan speaks of his love for parent club Flamengo.
Adryan has yet to make his competitive first-team debut for Leeds United, but he seems to be already looking far into the future.
And that future does not have Leeds in it.
The 20-year-old Brazilian playmaker has stated that his eventual plan is to return to parent club Flamengo.
The youngster joined Leeds on a season-long loan deal in the summer transfer window, but it appears that he does not have any immediate plans to remain at Elland Road beyond the end of the 2014-15 campaign.
‘It's impossible not to think about Flamengo’, Sports Mole quotes Adryan as telling Sky Sports News. ‘I have a lot of affection for the club.
‘I can't think of playing for any other club in Brazil. I am a Flamengo player, so let's see what happens in the future. But Flamengo will always be in my blood’.
Adryan has been on the books of Flamengo since 2007 and his love towards the Brazilian club is understandable.
However, if the youngster does catch the eye at Leeds as the season progresses and turns out to be a great signing as he has been built up to be, then things could change.
After all, playing in England, especially for a club as big as Leeds, is a dream for many players and Flamengo could be convinced to sell him at the right price.
But all that is far into the future. At this moment in time, it is all about how Adryan plays for Leeds in the Championship.
If Adryan fails to perform well, then club owner Massimo Cellino may not interested in taking up the option of signing him on a permanent deal next summer.
