Phil Hay believes that Ryan Edmondson could be sent out on loan by Leeds in this transfer window.
Speaking in his live Q and A Hay claimed that “Edmondson is the one who could go out.” After being asked by a fan if “Any of the younger players going to get loans this window?”.
Would Edmondson going out on loan be a wise move?
Yes, he needs the game time
No, keep him as an impact sub
He also went on to say that Marcelo Bielsa does not like loaning out young players who he thinks are close to the first team – so this suggests that Edmondson is not in Bielsa’s plans.
Why would Leeds loan Edmondson out?
The 18-year-old striker scored 19 goals at reserve level last season.
If he can impress on loan at a League One, League Two, or even a Vanarama National side, then maybe he can be involved in Bielsa’s squad next season.
His goalscoring record at reserve level is impressive, but now it is time for him to make that step up and show Bielsa that he can do it in a competitive league against professional footballers.
If he does go out on loan, then the young man should see it as an opportunity to impress and not a setback.
