Loan star Tom Adeyemi hasn't ruled out the possibility of a permanent move to Leeds United.

Leeds United loan star Tom Adeyemi has admitted to the Yorkshire Evening Post that he’s definitely thinking about the possibility of an extended stay at the club.

The Cardiff City owned midfielder has impressed this season after joining from the Welsh club earlier in the summer.

It’s still too early to say whether his temporary move will be turned into a more permanent acquisition, but he’s admitted that it’s something that he’s already toyed over in the back of his mind.

“I think a lot depends on how I perform. I’ve got to make sure I get myself in a position where the club are thinking about me,” he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“Obviously I’m still under contract with Cardiff and I don’t really know what the thoughts are there but I’m thoroughly enjoying my time here – as much as I’ve enjoyed playing anywhere else. It’s definitely something I’m thinking about.”

Plenty to think about

Aeyemi could represent a good value permanent signing for Leeds, but there are variables which make it difficult for the club to nail their colours to the mast right now.

For example, if he excels with his form at Leeds, that could convince Cardiff that he’s worth keeping and they could put him on improved terms which are difficult for Uwe Rosler’s club to match.

He may also pick up a long term injury, which would be unfortunate but is something which could see him going back to Cardiff for his recovery, which is where he would likely stay.

It may also be the case that the clubs struggle to work out an agreement, which makes it difficult for them to settle over a permanent deal.
