Tom Adeyemi’s response when asked about his long-term future at Leeds United

Tom Adeyemi has remained coy over his future plans with Leeds United.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, loan midfielder Tom Adeyemi has admitted that he has still not heard anything about a long-term stay at Leeds United, as the management situation at Elland Road has changed since he arrived at the club.

When asked about his future plans, Adeyemi said: “I’m just focusing on doing as well as I can for Leeds. The rest can take care of itself. I don’t know what the club’s plans are. Obviously I was brought in during the summer under different circumstances to what we’re in now. I honestly don’t know what will happen.”

Adeyemi, 24, arrived on loan at Elland Road from Cardiff City over the summer transfer window, and is set to remain with Steve Evans’ team until next summer.

A solid, if average, performer so far this term, Adeyemi has played 16 of 19 games, starting 13 and featuring as the ball-winning midfielder in the middle of the park.

He has struggled for form at times, although his performance against Hull on Saturday was arguably his best of the campaign.

Playing as part of a three-man central midfield, Adeyemi was offered the chance to attack more frequently, and he was rewarded with just his second goal of the campaign.

Many have believed that Adeyemi would not be a long-term solution for Leeds, but if he continues to perform this season as he did against Hull, Evans would surely want to make his move a permanent one.

The midfielder still has months to go before his future has to be decided, and he is still unaware of what Leeds’ plans may be for him. However, a season of good performances will surely make the Yorkshire club move to bring him to Elland Road at the end of this campaign.
