Adryan receives major boost which explains desire to join Leeds permanently

Leeds United's Adryan has revealed that his family have finally joined him in England after three months.

Leeds United playmaker Adryan has received a huge boost in his personal life - which could effect his happiness and desire to stay at the club.

The Brazilian is on loan at Leeds, and this week was finally joined by his family, who have come to live with him in England.

In an interview with BBC Radio Leeds, he said: "With my family here now, it's enough for me to play well and enjoy.

"My wife and daughter are here, arrived yesterday. When I saw them again, I was so happy with this, (It's been) three months."

Adryan's little girl is only two, and to have her and his partner join him in England finally will only help him settle on and off the field.

Had they chosen not to come to England, it could not only have begun to affect his game, but also his decision to sign for Leeds permanently in the long-term, which should be discussed at the end of the season with parent club Flamengo.

Adryan went onto say he is enjoying playing under Neil Redfearn, and has a positive relationship with club owner Massimo Cellino, who he met in Brazil when he was scouting another player and he caught his eye.

He told the Yorkshire Evening Post he is enjoying the football and is keen on a stay: "When the season finishes I hope I will be able to stay."

Being settled off the field, only makes his choice easier and more likely that he will remain at the club.
