There are a number of Leeds United fans who were hoping to see far more of the likes of Ryan Edmondson this season, especially after the departure of Kemar Roofe last summer, but for reasons we have to trust, manager Marcelo Bielsa hasn’t leaned on youth when it comes to the frontline so far this season.
Whether that changes in the second half of the 2019/20 campaign remains to be seen and probably depends on what we do in the January transfer market following Eddie Nketiah’s recall by Arsenal, but as this week came to a close there was a bizarre story doing the rounds and it stemmed from a Tweet from Cork City co-owner, Kevin Cronin, who thought the 18-year-old was on his way to them for a loan spell.
It was nothing malicious and I think plenty of fans would be happy to see the young lad head out to bolster his experience, but Cronin had been misled by someone and Edmondson was happy to politely put him right.
I am very much so still sat in my living room at home😂

Although the original Tweet has been removed, it seems Cronin saw the funny side of it.

Plenty of Leeds fans did as you can see by clicking on the above Tweets.
All’s well that ends well I guess.
Should We Be Loaning Edmondson This Month?
No, Get Him In The First Team
Yes, It Would Be A Good Test For Him
