Adryan joins on one year loan…
United can now confirm the loan signing of Adryan Oliveira Tavares from Brazilian side Flemengo, subject to international clearance.
The deal to bring Adryan to Elland Road also includes the option to make his move permanent should he have a successful loan spell with the club.
The 20-year-old is a current Brazil Under-20 international and has been involved in the national set-up since Under-15 level.
The young attacking midfielder came through the youth ranks at Flemengo in Rio de Janeiro and debuted for their senior side in July 2012.
In January of this year the promising young Brazilian joined Cagliari on an 18-month loan deal. But a thigh injury limited his appearances at the Italian side.
Adryan’s time at Cagliari has now been cut short and the 20-year-old will become United’s 13th signing of the summer.
