Adam Drury in a Leeds United shirt, reaction to trial display, questions

Elland Road Revie Stand

Leeds United fans reacted positively to Adam Drury's pre-season audition, but questions will remain.

Leeds United are expected to make a decision on the future of Adam Drury today (Friday), as explained by head coach Uwe Rosler to LUTV.

Rosler said he would be watching tape of all the players from the midweek friendly matches, which along with training sessions would factor into his final decision.

Former Manchester City youngster Adam Drury is a free agent, and was an unused substitute against Harrogate last week. This week he played around 40 minutes of the 1-1 friendly draw with York City, in front of the watching Rosler.

The winger is also able to play at full-back, and there was a largely positive reaction to his performance from supporters.

Fan reaction


Leeds are in need of wide players, and while their overall budget is unclear, it is likely they have spent a large portion of it already on fees for Chris Wood, Lee Erwin and Sol Bamba.

What Leeds have to be careful of, and weigh up, is whether they would just be signing Drury because it is the easiest option?

He is a player full of promise but not the final product, and if he signs he would likely be cover for Sam Byram on the right, but again it is unclear how many regular opportunities he would receive?

If Drury is signed along with another, more proven winger, then his addition will be more under the radar, but should he be the only wide player signed by the club this summer it may place more pressure on his young shoulders than he is ready for.
