Leeds United main man raves over 'tremendous' Adryan


Neil Redfearn has been discussing Leeds United loanee Adryan's huge talent.

Adryan shone in Leeds' win over Derby County, with the Brazilian coming off to a standing ovation.

The Flamengo loanee was making a fourth consecutive start under Neil Redfearn, and is establishing himself as a firm fixture in the side.

The club's head coach believes goals are not far off in the playmaker's game, but is delighted with his defensive work too.

He told BBC Radio Leeds: "He's a tremendous talent. He has this ability and awareness to wriggle himself out of tight situations and he's got a pass in him.

"He'll start scoring as well. You can see he's around the box and he'll nick a goal or two, and I thought he really worked hard today.

"He really thought hard about his movement, how to get on the ball, his work rate for the cause was excellent. I thought it was nice he came off and got the chance to have the ovation because he deserved it."

Adryan's substitution was in the 93rd minute, and he is showing he is getting up to full fitness after Neil Redfearn previously described this as an area for development.

His hard work and running shows he is no show pony, and if he continues to buy into the club's philosophy, there is every chance Leeds owner Massimo Cellino will sanction a deal to sign him on a permanent basis.
