LOAN WATCH: Flamengo's Adryan eager to perform for Leeds Utd

Leeds United's latest signing Adryan is determined to perform at his absolute best for the Championship club.

The 20-year old Brazilian attacking midfielder has arrived at Elland Road on a season-long loan from Flamengo and insists it was not a hard decision to make his way to England so he can experience football in the country's second top division.

"I like English football. When I was a child I saw many times the Championship and the Premier League," he told the club's official website.

"I didn't have to think for one second (to join Leeds). I'm so happy with coming here but I need to work and play."

Adryan turned out in the Whites' Development Squad's 3-2 defeat to Ipswich Town this week and is a chance to make his debut in the weekend's league meeting with Birmingham City.
