Leeds United wonderkid Ryan Edmondson could make his senior debut for the club against Norwich on Saturday, according to an insider.
Lufcyouth, an ever-reliable source on information inside the Whites’ development squads, claimed on their Twitter account on Friday that Edmondon, 16, is in the travelling party to Carrow Road.

Edmondson has been in stunning form for Leeds’ Under-18s this season and has helped them win the PDL North Division this term with his prolific form in front of goal.
The teenage wonderkid, who was born in York, is a natural centre-forward and it seems that manager Paul Heckingbottom could give him the nod to play after being left frustrated by the lack of goals from Pierre-Michel Lasogga, Caleb Ekuban and Kemar Roofe.
Football Insider verdict
Leeds fans will be delighted to see Edmondson potentially making his debut against Norwich this weekend. He has been prolific in the development teams and it was only a matter of time before Heckingbottom gave him the chance to show what he is made of. Even if Edmondson is not named on the bench, him being there to experience what it is like being inside a big stadium for a Championship will be a massive boost for him and hopefully motivate him to continue his development over the next couple of years to become a true mainstay of the first team.
