Aberdeen: Ryan Edmondson could miss four months due to ankle injury and returns to Leeds

Aberdeen have confirmed Ryan Edmondson could be out for up to four months after suffering an ankle injury in training.

A scan revealed the on-loan striker will miss three to four months, and the 19-year-old has now returned to parent club Leeds to see a specialist.

Aberdeen only signed Edmondson on loan a fortnight ago after Sam Cosgrove sustained a knee injury which could keep him out for four months.
