Newcastle United: Cody Drameh would be a ‘perfect fit’

Newcastle United: Cody Drameh would be a ‘perfect fit’ -Newcastle United News

Journalist Pete O’Rourke has claimed that transfer target Cody Drameh would be a ‘perfect fit’ and could be ‘huge’ at Newcastle United.

The Lowdown: Newcastle interest

Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has shared that Newcastle are interested in signing Drameh during the early stages of 2023.

The Leeds United right-back has been identified as a target to improve the squad’s depth of young talent, as Eddie Howe looks to provide Kieran Trippier with some genuine competition.

The Latest: ‘Perfect fit’

Speaking to GiveMeSport, O’Rourke has claimed that Drameh would be a ‘perfect fit’ at St. James’ Park, as he has the potential to be a ‘huge’ player for the Magpies:

“If you’re looking at a young right-back to come in and provide cover for Kieran Trippier, I think Cody Drameh would be a perfect fit.

“He is very highly-rated at Leeds United and did well out on loan in the Championship as well.

“If Newcastle were able to land him, I think they would get a player with huge potential to become a future star at St James’ Park.”

The Verdict: Get it done

Trippier has played in every game for the North East club so far this season, and is in need of rotation to keep him fresh and less susceptible to injuries.

Emil Krafth is out injured at the moment, while Javier Manquillo has been largely out of favour under Howe.

Drameh showed his qualities while on loan at Cardiff City last season, as after signing last January, he played in every match in the division up until the end of the campaign, prompting his manager Steve Morison to claim that he was ‘like a Duracell Bunny‘.

At 21 years of age, he has also made seven senior appearances for Leeds United, including two so far this term (Transfermarkt), and would offer fresh legs at right-back in Trippier’s occasional absence.

Nonetheless, this would be a smart signing by the Magpies.
