We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson can see why Cody Drameh might be tempted to quit Leeds United for Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window.
Fabrizio Romano reported on Monday (14 November) that the 20-year-old right-back is wanted by Newcastle, Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Lille ahead of January.
Drameh has made just two senior appearances for the Whites this season and Robinson believes that if he can get more game time at Dortmund, he should look to make the move to Germany.
“Marsch isn’t using him at all. He’s barely been in the squad and he wasn’t in the squad at the weekend,” Robinson told MOT Leeds News.
“For him to go there (Dortmund), the important thing would be for him to play. But if he stays at Leeds, he might not play.
“If he’s got the chance to go to Dortmund and play in the Bundesliga every week, it’s a huge opportunity and a far better opportunity than he’s got at Leeds.
“But there’s no point in him going somewhere else to do the same thing he’s doing at Leeds, which is sitting there and not playing.”
Rasmus Kristensen and Luke Ayling are currently ahead of Drameh in the right-back pecking order.
Last season, the ex-Fulham youngster made five senior appearances for Leeds before he was loaned to Cardiff in January, playing 22 times for the Welsh outfit.
Drameh did so well at Cardiff that he won their player of the season award, with WalesOnline reporting that “the right-back’s displays have been energetic and sometimes even freakish in nature”.
In other Leeds United news, Phil Hay has revealed the whispers he’s heard at Elland Road about when the 49ers will complete their takeover.
