Former Aberdeen striker Ryan Edmondson has completed his third loan move inside 12 months, leaving Leeds United for English League One club Fleetwood Town.

Edmondson moved to Aberdeen from Leeds United last year in what was his first senior loan transfer. He made his competitive debut in men’s football for the Pittodrie club against Rangers, making 16 appearances with two goals before leaving in January.

The 20-year-old joined Northampton Town that month and scored two goals in 21 matches as his second loan club were relegated to League Two. Now he leaves Leeds United again, joining Fleetwood, who are managed by former Elland Road manager Simon Grayson.

Edmondson said of his move: “I’ve known the Gaffer [Simon Grayson] for a while now and when he played for Leeds [United], I was a fan, so I’ve seen the way he works and what he is all about and when I spoke to him, he sold the club well to me.

 

“He spoke about the way he wants to do things and the way he wants to play and what he said suits me down to a tee – it’s a great family club and I can’t wait to get going. It’s a great opportunity at a club that wants to push in League One this year.

“I’ve experienced the league and games against Fleetwood last year and have seen that it is a great club with a brilliant setup. They’ve got aspirations on what they want to do as a club and that is what every player looks for so I just can’t wait to get started.
