Leeds United youngster Cody Drameh is closing in on a January loan move to Nottingham Forest, according to a fresh rumour which has emerged.
The Lowdown: Drameh impresses in youth team
The 20-year-old has been a regular figure in the Whites’ under-23s team in recent times, making 33 appearances for them to date. Drameh also made his senior Leeds debut back in September, playing against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup and making four appearances in total for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
A move away makes sense for the youngster, though, in order to gain more first team experience, and a temporary Elland Road exit appears to be on the cards.
The Latest: Nottingham Forest move beckons
According to Football Insider, a Thorp Arch source has claimed that Drameh will join Championship side Forest on a loan deal until the end of the season.
Negotiations are believed to have ‘intensified in the last 24 hours’, as a move looks set to be completed imminently.
The Verdict: Ideal experience for Drameh
Despite Leeds’ injury problems this season, it still makes sense for Drameh to be handed a loan move, as he looks to earn regular playing time at senior level.
The right-back has been described as ‘fantastic’ by pundit Ben Parker and he could grow further as a player, gaining invaluable experience in a challenging league.
With Luke Ayling now 30 years of age, Drameh should believe he can be the long-term replacement for the Elland Road favourite – the hope is that he returns to Yorkshire an even more rounded young footballer in the summer.
