Leeds coach raves about Tom Adeyemi and Lewie Coyle

Leeds United 2

The Leeds United Under-21 side defeated their Coventry City counterparts on Monday afternoon.

Leeds United coach Jason Blunt has told LUTV that he was impressed with the performances of Tom Adeyemi and Lewie Coyle on Monday afternoon.

Adeyemi and Coyle both featured for the Leeds Under-21 side against their Coventry City counterparts at Thorp Arch on Monday afternoon.

The home team won the game 1-0, thanks to a late goal from Casper Sloth, who volleyed home Kalvin Phillips’s left-wing cross two minutes from time to secure the three points.

Blunt was impressed with the displays of Adeyemi, who is a first-team midfielder, and 20-year-old defender Coyle.

“Tom Adeyemi was different class in the middle of the park, covered lots of ground and won lots of tackles,” Blunt told LUTV. “He was extremely good, and also Lewie Coyle, I thought, was outstanding, especially in the second half.”

Adeyemi, who is 24 years of age, joined Leeds on a season-long loan deal from Championship rivals Cardiff City in the summer of 2015.

The former Norwich City and Birmingham City midfielder has scored two goals and created seven chances in 19 league appearances so far this season.

Meanwhile, Coyle, who is highly rated and plays as a right-back, has played twice in the Championship for Leeds this campaign.
