Former York City youth-team striker Ryan Edmondson made his Leeds United senior debut in their 2-0 home victory against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday afternoon.
Teenager Edmondson replaced United’s opening goalscorer Kemar Roofe on 74 minutes and soon received a caution for pushing an opponent.
The sixteen-year-old only moved to Elland Road in November following a couple of years at City’s Academy, with his new deal including a number of progress-based financial incentives that could benefit his former club.
Edmondson already made his York senior debut as a second-half substitute during their 2-1 victory against Brackley Town last October.
Meanwhile, Leeds also featured their latest Young Player of the Year, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, who includes four appearances on loan to the Minstermen earlier this season.
