Leeds: Cody Drameh looks set for January exit

Leeds: Cody Drameh looks set for January exit -Leeds United News

Leeds United youngster Cody Drameh looks set to depart Elland Road during the January transfer window, according to an update from journalist Joe Donnohue.

The Lowdown: Drameh out of favour

The 20-year-old had been lured to Elland Road from Fulham two years ago and was frequently included in matchday squads by Marcelo Bielsa, but things have somewhat stagnated for him of late.

Drameh has been limited to just one appearance in the Premier League this season, and one in the Carabao Cup, with Jesse Marsh not seeing him as part of his first-team plans.

Indeed, it now looks as though the right-back may have reached the end of the line at Leeds.

The Latest: January exit seems likely

Taking to Twitter on Monday evening, Donnohue reacted to Graham Smyth’s report for the Yorkshire Evening Post which claimed that Drameh is expected to depart Leeds permanently in January.

He tweeted:

“A shame this looks to be the end of the road for Drameh at #LUFC, but best for all parties. Bags of talent, as shown throughout his time at Thorp Arch and with Cardiff last season, but completely wasted in U21s football. Writing on the wall in summer when Leeds signed Kristensen.”

The Verdict: Time to move on

While it is a pity to see talented young players moving on from Leeds, this does feel like a natural parting of ways between Drameh and the Yorkshire club.

It would be far more beneficial to his career to enjoy regular football somewhere else, rather than potentially staying in the under-23s and not reaching his potential.

True or False? Jesse Marsch played for the USA at the World Cup!

Drameh is unlikely to be without suitors during January given his long-term promise and a host of Championship and European interest over the summer, and it is simply a case of making the right decision for his career, ensuring that he carves out a positive pathway for himself.
