The Telegraph & Argus have claimed that League Two side Bradford City want to sign a third Leeds United player on loan this month – in the form of teenage striker Ryan Edmondson, after he returned to Elland Road.
Edmondson, 19, has spent the first half of the season on loan at Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen, having failed to break into a Leeds side managed by Marcelo Bielsa. He played twice for the first team before Bielsa’s arrival.
But the England Under-19 international has failed to add to that and went on loan last summer. He clocked up 16 appearances for Aberdeen, scoring two goals in the same match against Hamilton. But he has now returned.
Edmondson confirmed his Leeds return on Instagram but he is unlikely to unpack his bags. That is because another loan is expected and the Telegraph & Argus claim Bradford want to raid Leeds for a third time this season.
Bradford have signed Jordan Stevens on loan from Leeds after the winger was recalled from his spell with Swindon Town. The Bantams already had Bryce Hosannah at the club, after the right-back joined from Leeds in the summer.
TBR’s view – Bradford ideal for Edmondson
The fact Stevens and Hosannah are already at the club makes what is a good loan for Edmondson, even better. The striker is in the final six months of his contract and needs to show potentially interested parties what he can do.
Even a move to Bradford on a permanent basis could materialise from a loan spell. However, the report claims that Aberdeen have made an offer to extend his spell at Pittodrie and while he has returned, Bradford would be perfect.
