‘A real talent’: Some fans react as ‘excellent’ Leeds 19-year-old seals loan switch

Leeds United striker Ryan Edmondson has left Elland Road on loan, joining Aberdeen until January.

The 19-year-old linked up with the Whites from York City in 2017 on a scholarship contract and went on to sign a new three-year deal a year later.

Edmondson has been a regular for Leeds’ Under-23s over the past two seasons and boasts an impressive record at that level.

However, he has made just two first-team appearances for the Whites to date, partly due to unfortunate injuries at the wrong times.

A debut from the bench under Paul Heckingbottom in May 2018 was followed by his only appearance under Bielsa in September 2018.

He will now continue his development away from Elland Road at Aberdeen, who face Rangers on Saturday, and is likely to go straight into Derek McInnes’ squad.

The Pittodrie side has been left reeling from Sam Cosgrove’s knee problem, which could rule him out for up to 10 weeks.

With Aberdeen experiencing a shortage of strikers, not to mention Edmonson’s credentials, quite a few Dons fans are pleased to have him on board.

Below is some of the social media reaction to the young forward’s arrival at Pittodrie:
