Leeds United front man makes loan move

14 January 2021

Northampton Town have signed Leeds United striker Ryan Edmondson on loan for the rest of the season.

The 19 year old front man, who made his Leeds United first team debut in the Championship at the age of 16, has been a prolific scorer in the Leeds United under 23 side, scoring 20 goals to help United U23s win the Premier League Professional Development League title in 2019.

Aberdeen were keen to extend his stay after he spent the first half of this season on loan in the SPL but with a host of clubs interested in the former England under 19 international, he has made the move to the PTS Academy Stadium for the rest of the season.

"Ryan has a lot of excellent attributes and I am really pleased we are able to bring him to the club," said manager Keith Curle.

"He is a mobile, hard working, aggressive centre forward. He has a hunger and a desire to score goals and he is capable of scoring different types of goals. Beyond that, he is someone who can link play well, he also has an excellent work ethic and is someone willing to go the extra mile for the team.

"He is a player we spotted a while ago and have tracked for some time, we tried to sign him in the last transfer window and I am delighted we have been able to secure his signature now.

"It is also pleasing that Leeds United have seen how we help to develop young players and are happy to allow Ryan to join us at this stage of his career."
