The agent of Cagliari playmaker Adryan is jetting to Italy for talks over his client moving to English Championship side Leeds United.

Adryan is thought to be keen on a switch to Elland Road, while it is also believed Leeds have thrashed out an agreement with Cagliari for the 20-year-old playmaker.

However, with Adryan being on loan from Flamengo to Cagliari, with the Serie A club holding a purchase option, there are another two parties with whom Leeds must reach an agreement.

The first is with Adryan himself, while the second is Flamengo, who must give their consent to any switch.


According to Sky Italia, Adryan's agent is now flying over to Italy to help push the deal forward, at which time he will then fly on to England.


Leeds owner Massimo Cellino did the deal which took Adryan to Cagliari at the start of this year during his time as owner of the Italian club.

Cellino is a firm fan of Adryan and is desperate to take him to Elland Road, though he has accepted the deal is a complicated one.
