The Leeds United striker Ryan Edmondson was considered as a potential loan signing for Bradford City in the summer transfer window, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.

The Bradford manager Gary Bowyer was present when Edmondson scored a hat-trick for a Leeds XI against Tadcaster Albion at the start of pre-season, 

The Bantams, though, have since signed another striker, Aramide Oteh, on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers.

 

And The YEP claims that a move for Edmondson, to Bradford or anywhere, ahead of Monday's transfer deadline for League One and Two clubs is now 'unlikely'.

Edmondson has scored prolifically for Leeds' Under-23s since his 2017 move from York City, leading to two first-team appearances under Marcelo Bielsa.
