Bradford City look in pole position to land Leeds United striker, Ryan Edmondson, on loan for the remainder of the season.
Leeds had sent Edmondson up to Scotland for the first-half of the 2020/21 campaign, with the striker linking up with Aberdeen.
Edmondson scored two goals and registered two assists in 14 Scottish Premiership appearances, as well as playing in the Europa League. However, he is heading back to Leeds this month.

That won’t be for long, however, with the Yorkshire Evening Post revealing how the young striker is closing in on another loan move away from Elland Road.
It appears that Bradford are also in the driving seat to tie up their second raid on Leeds this month by bringing Edmondson in.
They’ve already picked up Jordan Stevens on loan from their Yorkshire rivals, whilst Bryce Hosannah has been on loan at Valley Parade for a longer period.
The report suggests that whilst Bradford are interested, there’s competition to sign Edmondson from their League Two rivals, clubs in League One and, actually, other teams up in Scotland.
In terms of Edmondson’s Leeds career, he’s made only two senior appearances from the bench. He’s been a regular goalscorer in the under-23s, though.
Whilst there appears to be a depth of interest in Edmondson after he cut his Aberdeen spell short, it seems Bradford will be in pole position.
They’ve the benefit of a good relationship with Leeds already when it comes to transfers and they are, in fact, the only named club interested in a move.
That points to the fact that it’s going to be Valley Parade this month for the 19-year-old, as he closes in on a fresh move away from Elland Road.
