Adryan hails Alex Mowatt: I like playing with him a lot

Leeds United loanee Adryan has paid testament to Alex Mowatt's ability.

Leeds United's Brazilian trickster Adryan may have seen a lot of talented attacking midfielders back in his homeland, but it has not stopped him being impressed by Alex Mowatt since moving to Elland Road. 

Mowatt has wowed fans at Elland Road with his displays this season and Adryan has joined the 19-year-old's long list of admirers today. 

The two Whites youngsters are amongst the most dangerous attacking players that Leeds have at the moment and Adryan believes they are forming an excellent partnership. 

"He’s a great player and he’s just one of those players that you just know how to play with, like in training doing one-twos with him," Adryan said to the club's official site.

"We just read each other really well and know what’s going to happen. I like playing with him a lot." 

Mowatt's form over recent weeks earned Football League recognition earlier this morning, as he was handed the Young Player of the Month Award.

He is playing an important role for the side and seems to be thriving with increased responsibility. 

Mowatt has scored four goals already this season, with his driving runs from deep catching the eye of supporters and players alike. 

He looks one of the finest prospects to come out of Leeds' academy in recent times and he will be hoping to continue earning further plaudits as the season progresses.
