Cody Drameh may never feature for Leeds United again with January transfer very likely
Cody Drameh may have played his last game for Leeds United after reports emerged that he was on his way out in the January transfer window.
The Yorkshire Evening Post claimed [28 November] that Leeds will be parting ways with the 20-year-old in January.
There is interest in his services from the likes of Newcastle and Borussia Dortmund while the Whites are expecting offers from the Netherlands and Germany along with sides in England.
It’s also understood that an extension that was once on the table for him is no longer there so Drameh is most certainly going to wear the colours of another club this season.
Domestic football is currently on a break and action resumes on 29 December with a game against Manchester City.
Rasmus Kristensen and Luke Ayling are likely to compete for the starting spots in that one and the game two days later will possibly see Jesse Marsch play the one who did not start against City.

With this news breaking, it’s clear that Drameh’s representatives will have started working on a transfer away from the club so it makes no sense for Marsch to give him game time.
He probably will even stop training and try to sort out an exit as soon as possible after a topsy-turvy time at the club.
Leeds may want to keep a youngster of his potential at the club, but now that he wants to leave, they must spark a bidding war for his services.
Marcelo Bielsa also praised the right-back when he was at the club. “Presence was deserved. Best moment he’s gone through. In general lines, he was good,” said Bielsa after the cup defeat against Arsenal in 2021, as quoted by Leeds Live.
He can fetch good money with 18 months left on his deal and Leeds must play off the interest from Newcastle and Dortmund to spark a bidding war.
In other Leeds United news, a first-team defender may not have long left at Elland Road after “Awful” footage emerges from this month, making a January transfer imperative.
