Leeds United striker Ryan Edmondson has said his goodbyes to Scottish Premiership outfit Aberdeen following a loan spell at Pittodrie.

The 19-year-old made the switch north of the border earlier in the season but his time with the club will not be extended beyond the current winter transfer window.

Edmondson made just three starts during his time with the Dons, scoring two goals and recording a further two assists.

He did return to Elland Road briefly earlier in the season following an ankle injury but made the move back to Scotland following the completion of his rehab at Thorp Arch.

The Whites forward took to social media to confirm his exit and return to West Yorkshire.

"Would like to thank this amazing club and everyone within it to be given the opportunity to put on that shirt and represent this club," he wrote.

"Was very special for me to have scored my first professional goals here and will always be remembered.

"Thank you all once again and I wish you all the best in the future."

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes was reportedly keen on extending Edmondson's loan spell until the end of the campaign.

A lack of game time, however, raised questions over the possibility of any agreement being reached.

The YEP understands there are other clubs keen to loan the former England Under-19 international, whose contract at Elland Road is up this summer.
