Adryan pictured training with Leeds first team, left out of u21s, is a last gasp salvation on the horizon?

Does Adryan have a part to play for Leeds United this weekend?

Could there still be a part to play for Leeds United loanee Adryan before the season is out?

The Brazilian has barely featured in 2015, having fallen out of favour under head coach Neil Redfearn.

There is no question however that Redfearn presently still views Adryan as a first team option, thanks to his choice over the past 24 hours.

On Thursday morning the 20-year-old was pictured training with the Leeds United first team, and just hours later an under-21 game kicked off, and he was nowhere to be seen.

Fellow loanee Brian Montenegro meanwhile was involved for the under-21s, starting and scoring, but seemingly still not in Redfearn's first team plans.

Adryan has played for the under-21s in recent weeks, and the decision to keep him in with the first team at least demonstrates that Redfearn still feels he is worthy of consideration for a spot.

The head coach has made clear so far that he feels the Flamengo loanee still has areas to work on his game if he is to be a success in the Championship, but with nothing to play for over the final few weeks there remains a chance for Redfearn to experiment in his team selection.

Kalvin Phillips was handed a debut at the weekend against Wolves and acquitted himself well, a player who was recently in the under-21 team playing alongside Adryan.

He has nine starts to his name, but the last of these came back on December 20. With five games to go before the season's end, there remains a chance for Adryan to get one final chance to stake his claim to stay at the club beyond this season.
