No new arrivals in the past few days for Leeds United, but The Whites did manage to offload one of the club’s highest earning players, parting ways with Paddy Kenny by mutual consent.

That shouldn’t be the end of the ins and outs at Elland Road however with the club looking to bring in up to six additional players according to the Leeds United owner.

Top of Massimo Cellino’s wishlist is Brazilian playmaker Adryan who’s currently on loan to his former club Cagliari.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder, whose contract is held by Flamengo, wants to come to Elland Road according to Cellino but the deal is a complicated one and discussions may take some time with both the Brazilian club and the player’s agent.

Having progressed from Brazil’s U15 to U20 side so far, there’s big expectations on the shoulders of Adryan who is dubbed by Flamengo fans ‘herdeiro de Zico‘ (heir of Zico). No pressure, then.

Progress is also being made for striker Mirco Antenucci who currently plays for Serie B side Ternana and has agreed personal terms with Leeds United according to the Gazzetta dello Sport. Massimo Cellino still needs to agree a transfer fee for the striker however and with Ternana looking for €1.5m and Leeds already having options up front, I doubt Cellino will be rushing this one through without first negotiating that figure down.

Finally, Matt Smith has agreed a new 3-year-deal, describing it as a “honour and a privilege” to represent Leeds United.
