The Brazilian made his Leeds debut at Rotherham.

Leeds United fans have been waiting eagerly for some time to see Adryan in action.

And, against Rotherham United, they finally got their chance.

The 20-year-old did not start, however, with a late change to the teamsheet seeing Lewis Cook replace him in the starting line-up.

But Adryan did come on with 27 minutes to go - and, in that time, he showed what all the fuss is about with a promising display.

Lewis Cook 21 0 10.5 1.75 63

As Opta stats show, the Brazilian averaged less minutes per dribble and shot than any other Leeds player.

In just 27 minutes, Adryan won two dribbles and took three shots at goal. Three was the highest amount of dribbles for any Leeds player over the course of 90 minutes, while four was the highest amount of shots.

The 20-year-old showed pace and flair and was not afraid to get involved, evidenced by his relatively low rate of minutes per touch taken - as well as the same statistic for his final-third passes.

Adryan may not be a guaranteed starter yet - but his promising cameo against the Millers has certainly done his prospects no harm whatsoever.
