Cody Drameh permanent Leeds United exit surely on cards amid late-May development
Luton Town secured their place in the Premier League on Saturday – and that could have a dramatic impact on Cody Drameh’s future at Leeds United.
Jordan Clark’s first-half strike was cancelled out by a Gustavo Hamer finish to send the Championship playoff final to penalties – with Rob Edwards’ side coming out on top after Fankaty Dabo fired his spot kick into the sea of orange at the east end of the national stadium.
Drameh featured from the outset and produced another fine performance for the Hatters. The 21-year-old will now return to Elland Road but Luton’s promotion will surely see interest in his services grow.
The Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano revealed (via Twitter, 14 May) that Drameh is likely to make a decision on his future in the coming days and the Leeds could be open to selling the right back.
“Luton Town are heading towards the playoffs, Cody Drameh has a year left on his deal at Leeds — they could be open to selling a player that can agree on a free transfer in January,” he wrote (14 April).
“He is likely to make a decision on his future right after the playoffs.”
With Luton now destined for the Premier League, there will be an influx of cash at Kenilworth Road which could see the Hatters launch a move for Drameh.
He has a year left on his contract and if Leeds are relegated, funds may needed to be generated at Elland Road during the off-season. The 21-year-old has been on the periphery in West Yorkshire, which could see the board welcome a bid.
