Tom Adeyemi has been officially announced as the newest member of Leeds United. The 23-year-old is on a one-year loan from Cardiff City, in view of a permeant deal if he impresses Whites management.

Adeyemi began his career in Norwich City, and made a name for himself. He also has a connection with Leeds United head coach Uwe Rosler, as the midfielder played for coach Rosler in Brentford.

Rosler is apparently a huge fan of Adeyemi, as he was the one that signed the future White from Norwich City.

He played for the Bluebirds for a salary of around £1m after a transfer from Birmingham City in 2014. He was featured all 23 times during the 2014-2015 season.

Should the deal become permeant, a £1m buyout  clause has been agreed upon by both teams.

Adeyemi has made a total 191 appearances for 6 clubs during his young career.

"We are pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Tom Adeyemi on a season-long loan from Cardiff City." The team said via a statement online.

He found himself on the bench for most of his time in Cardiff, and was much in need for a change of scenery.

Rosler has been looking for a new midfielder after Luke Murphy went down due to a knee injury.
