Photo: Leeds United fan's Adryan message at Premier League darts

Leeds fans' fondness for Adryan saw a sign created asking where he is at Thursday night's darts event.

Brazilian playmaker Adryan has been conspicuous by his absence from the Leeds United first team in 2015, failing to play a single minute during the team's four game unbeaten run.

And last night at the Premier League Darts event, being held in Leeds, one fan held up a sign bearing a message asking exactly where he is.

The 20-year-old has not even made the bench for any of the last four games, with head coach Neil Redfearn telling BBC Radio Leeds he wants to see more of him in training, with competition for places intensifying.

It was not the only nod to football at last night's event, with another sign seen on screen criticising the Football League, and audible chants of 'Stand up if you hate Man U', heard around the First Direct Arena.

As for Adryan, he has been keeping fans updated that he is feeling settled at Leeds, via his Twitter page sending out a photo with his family enjoying a meal in the city centre this week.

It's just up to the youngster to break back into the thoughts of Redfearn, which has become more difficult since the tactical shift away from the diamond formation in which he at first impressed. 

He has two assists in 11 games for Leeds, but saw his form trail off in December as the team became embattled in a winless run which saw them drop down the table.
