Adryan 'can't rule out' staying at Leeds despite frustrating loan spell

Adryan says he can't rule out staying at Leeds despite his imminent return to Flamengo.

Leeds loan ace Adryan has told Globo Esporte that he isn't sure about his future at Elland Road, as he gets ready to return to Flamengo.

The Brazilian playmaker, 20, spent a spell on loan at Italian side Cagliari last season, before penning a temporary stay with Leeds last summer.

The skilful playmaker arrived in West Yorkshire with a strong reputation from his days at Flamengo, especially considering that he had a record of eight goals in 14 games for the Brazil Under-17 side.

Adryan has shown some glimpses of his quality in the Leeds team, but has often flattered to deceive, which has restricted him to just ten starts in all competitions.

With no playing time since the end of February in the 3-2 defeat to Watford, Adryan has endured a frustrating stay at Elland Road.

Given that the Championship season is now over, Adryan is set to return to Flamengo in the coming weeks, leaving his future up in the air.

Speaking to Globo Esporte back in Brazil, Adryan says that he doesn't know what his future holds, but can't rule out he possibility of staying at Leeds - despite his underwhelming season.

"I've learned a lot here [at Leeds] and at Cagliari," said Adryan. "Now I do not know what will happen. In the case of going back to Flamengo, I am more mature, better prepared. I've changed for the better."

"I never said I would rule out a return to Flamengo. However, I can't rule out continuing here for longer," said Adryan. "I will not discuss it because the decision involves others. I do not know my future. It depends on who appears, but I am a Flamengo player. I'll never rule out a return to Flamengo. I have one more year, a year and a half contract with them. I don't rule it out. We'll see."
