Leeds United under-23s forward Ryan Edmondson has been back on the training pitches at Thorp Arch after his recent lay-off with a knee problem.
The young striker had a knee operation recently and was ruled out of action until the end of March for Carlos Corberan’s youth side.
Edmondson has posted an update on his personal Instagram story on Thursday, sharing to fans that he had put his boots back to get back outside.
“The boots are back on,” he wrote.
Many fans were calling for Edmondson to feature in the senior matchday squad once Eddie Nketiah had been recalled by Arsenal, but since then, Jean-Kevin Augustin has arrived at Elland Road from RB Leipzig.
The Frenchman is currently injured with a troubling hamstring problem, and if Edmondson was fully fit he could have been given a chance alongside his under-23s teammates Jordan Stevens and Olly Casey on the bench.
Bobby Kamwa has been utilised as a lone-striker by Corberan and has impressed us when watching them recently. The winger even got on the scoresheet in the last Premier League Cup tie against Wolves.
Given that Edmondson was first expected to return at the end of March, it appears the striker is making superb progress behind-the-scenes.
Once the youngster is back running and completing ball work at Thorp Arch, it is likely that he will be made available and we will be watching him with the under-23s in no time.
