Crystal Palace: Eagles keen on Cody Drameh

Crystal Palace: Eagles keen on Cody Drameh -Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace are interested in a potential move for Leeds United right-back Cody Drameh, according to Graeme Bailey.

The Lowdown: Drameh profiled

The 20-year-old has been on the books with Leeds since 2020. During that time, the full-back has made seven senior appearances at Elland Road, while also enjoying a successful loan spell in the Championship with Cardiff City.

He won the Young Player of the Season award as well as the Player of the Season in south Wales, despite only joining on loan for the second half of the season.

Drameh was hailed as ‘excellent‘ by former Cardiff manager Steve Morison, and it looks as if Dougie Freedman and Patrick Vieira are looking at a possible swoop for the Leeds youngster.

The Latest: Palace interested in Drameh

Bailey was speaking to TEAMtalk regarding Drameh, claiming that a new contract with Leeds is looking unlikely. He then added what heh as been ‘told’ regarding multiple interested clubs, which include Palace.

The reporter started: “Drameh has just over 18 months left on his deal, and he knows of the interest in him which is widespread. There are clubs all over who seen Drameh as an option.

“Newcastle, West Ham and Crystal Palace see him as one for the future, whilst there are the likes of Middlesbrough and Norwich in the Championship who I am told also like him.

“However, the 20-year-old does have options abroad – I am told that the options are plentiful and not just Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig but from clubs in France and Italy too.”

The Verdict: Get it done

Palace’s current right-back options are Joel Ward and Nathaniel Clyne, both of whom are over the age of 30 and out of contract at the end of the season.

Therefore, Freedman and Vieira need to look at the long-term picture when it comes to their right-back ranks, with Drameh potentially the answer.

However, you’d expect that the Eagles may need to guarantee the youngster first-team football relatively quickly, especially with a number of clubs across Europe showing an interest.
