Leeds United’s Ryan Edmondson has just finished his six-month spell at SPL side Abderdeen. The Dons remain admirers of Edmondson but his goodbyes last week suggest that he won’t be returning north of the border despite the interest at Pittodrie.

Instead, Bradford City are looking to bring in yet another Leeds youngster having added Bryce Hosannah and Jordan Stevens to their squad this season, according to Sky Sports.

Tim Thornton claimed in a tweet that Bradford are one of several clubs looking to bring the 19-year-old to their club on-loan for the remainder of the season. The Telegraph and Argus concur with the rumours as they claim that The Bantams are looking to bolster their attack in the January transfer window.

Edmondson is a plyer who is looking to prove himself to Leeds head coach, Marcelo Bielsa who tends to keep players that he particularly likes handy to his squad rather than sending them on loan.

Despite a major injury that would have kept him out for weeks after his loan expired, Edmondson managed to battle his way back to fitness within a month and scored two and assisted two from his four games’ worth of minutes in the SPL. The youngster also managed to make his European debut at Aberdeen after making a substitute appearance at Sporting Lisbon in The Europa League qualifiers
