Midfielder for Cardiff City Football Club, Tom Adeyemi, has recently been signed to Leeds United for a season-long loan following in the footsteps of former Cardiff players Charlie Horton and Lee Erwin.

Adeyemi has expressed his admiration for Uwe Rosler, head coach of Leeds United, and his desire to play on this English football club permanently.

Adeyemi has played for Rosler in the past, and explained on the team's website how much of an influence Rosler has been on him: "I enjoyed working with Uwe before, he’s a really good manager. The opportunity to work with him again was one which I was happy to take."

This close relationship between coach and player can easily explain why fans had no trouble expecting the talented 23- year-old midfielder from Norwich to join the Leeds bench, especially after photos had surfaced of the two having a meeting at a restaurant the night before the decision.

Cardiff City seems to have taken news of his motives pretty well according to Adeyemi: "Cardiff said they were happy for it [the loan] to happen and at that point it was an easy decision for me to get on the motorway."

For many Leeds fans, this deal is an exciting transaction and up until recently, most couldn't wait to see how this talented midfielder played in the upcoming pre-season games.

It won't start on Wednesday:

However, just recently Adeyemi had suffered what he would consider a minor "knock" to his ankle and hopes to recover and return to full playing strength soon. He will most likely not be participating in the friendly pre-season against York City, but will hopefully be back in order to perform against the Whites in Austria starting July 18th.
