Leeds boss gives update on Adryan future, confirms no contact with Salerno

Leeds United

The Leeds head coach discussed the midfielder and sporting director.

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn has confirmed Adryan is back in training this week and that the 20-year-old has 'stuff he's got to sort out,' according to BBC Radio Leeds.

But Redfearn was unable to definitively say whether the Brazilian loanee will remain at Leeds next season.

Indeed, the coach admits Adryan's future is nothing to do with him but he did confirm that Nicola Salerno, the man on whom the responsibility falls, has not been in contact with him about the playmaker.

The Leeds boss gave the impression that Salerno is simply 'away' and has not resigned.

Redfearn told BBC Radio Leeds: "Adryan's trained this week and there's obviously stuff he's got to sort out."

And, when it was put to the 49-year-old that the Brazilian is unlikely to stay at Elland Road beyond this summer, he replied:

"Obviously, I don't deal with transfers, that's up to the owner and the sporting director. Adryan's trained this week, he's trained fine and the club will decide what happens."

Then, when the Leeds boss was asked whether he has had contact with Salerno - the sporting director - and also if the Italian had resigned from the Yorkshire club, Redfearn said:

"No, I haven't spoken to Nicola, no. He's away at this moment in time and that's where it's been left."

Leeds face Sheffield Wednesday this weekend looking to halt a run of five straight defeats. When the two sides met earlier this season, they played out a 1-1 draw.
