Better than Adryan? Leeds United new boy Zan Benedicic could be even more exciting

AC Milan

Is Leeds United's best summer signing yet to start a game for the club?

Leeds secured the signing of Zan Benedicic on loan in the summer, but the talented Slovenian has been cursed by injury.

The 19-year-old made two cameo appearances at the start of the season, but has been dealing with a knee problem since.

Radio Leeds correspondent Adrian Pope confirmed on Monday that it was not as severe as expected, confirmed he is remaining at the club.


An attacking midfielder who is owned by AC Milan, could he be even more exciting than Brazilian prospect Adryan and rival him for his position?

Benedicic is highly rated by the Italian side, and is a Slovenia under-21 international with one goal in five games.

He featured for the Italian giants' youth side in a game against Chelsea last season, and was even picked out by former Ballon d'Or winner and for Milan superstar Kaka as one to watch.

SkySports even referenced his 'glowing reports' for Milan's under-19 side when he clinched his Leeds move in August.

His keen eye for goal can be seen in the video below: 

With the news he does not need surgery a huge boost for the player, Benedicic could even be back before the year is out.

Not only will he seem like a new signing, but his ability see him could rival Adryan as a focal point of creativity in the club's attack
