for a reported fee of £27m but failed to make an impact in the Premier League side, scoring only three goals in 20 games.

Reports in Spain recently said the 30-year-old was ready to leave Elland Road and had asked permission to move in the upcoming summer transfer window, but Rodrigo said that is far from the case.

In a post on Instagram, he said:

"I'm not a person to comment on nonsense stories, however in this case I want to make it clear that stories about me wanting to leave Leeds and a bad relationship with Marcelo [Bielsa] are false.

"I am very sorry that some people try to misinform our fans - my feelings are the opposite.

"I am happy, focused and working hard to help with my teammates to end this great season in the best possible way. I love being at [Leeds United].

"I respect my coach and I identify with this club!"
