Russell Slade discusses Tom Adeyemi’s future

Tom Adeyemi is currently on loan at Leeds United from Cardiff City.

Tom Adeyemi is currently on loan at Leeds United, and Russell Slade has been discussing his future whilst speaking to Wales Online.

Slade said: “I think possibly we can call Tom back in January, but who do we put him in for now? I think I have good resources in that centre-midfield. Going forward whether Tom comes back and makes some impression here, that would be great. We’ll make that decision as and if we need it.”

Adeyemi left Cardiff during the summer, joining Leeds when it was clear he would not be playing much first-team football under Slade.

His parent club are currently residing in the play-off places, whilst the Whites are sitting in the bottom half of the table, but the midfielder put in his best performance of the season last weekend in what was Leeds’ best game of the campaign.

Adeyemi netted his second goal of the term against Hull, and looks to be a key part of Steve Evans team moving forward, but Slade has admitted that he has the possibility to call the midfielder back to Cardiff in January.

However, the Bluebirds boss has also admitted that he is not sure where Adeyemi would fit in Cardiff’s team for the rest of this campaign, meaning a stay at Leeds is most likely.

Looking further into the future, Slade has said it would be great for Adeyemi to return to Cardiff and have a positive impact with the Welsh club over the coming years, despite the fact he is only contracted with them until the end of this season.
