'Get it done' - Some Leeds fans react as Sky Sports journalist reports bid being prepared
Leeds United fans have given a mixed reaction to the news that the club is ready to bid £400,000 for Fulham youngster Cody Drameh.
Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol reported on his personal Twitter account on Thursday that the Whites are “one of the clubs” who want to sign the 18-year-old right-back.
It is understood that Leeds are readying a six-figure bid for the teenager but Fulham do not want to sell the England Under-18 international as they rate him highly.
Leeds United one of the clubs who want to sign Cody Drameh from Fulham. Ready to make £400,000 offer. Fulham don’t want to sell and see the 18-year-old right back as a big part of their future. He’s already in the England set up. One year left on his contract.

Drameh is yet to get a first-team appearance for Fulham but the London club has shown over the years that they are willing to offer youngsters a chance to shine at Craven Cottage.
Drameh is likely to believe them when they say they have plans to use him in the future but Marcelo Bielsa has also shown at Leeds that he offers a lot of chances to younger players due to the small senior squad he has at Elland Road.
It is likely that where Drameh ends up is based on which clubs presents him with the best opportunity in the future because with just one year left on his contract at Fulham, the Cottagers need to get him tied down to a new deal.
Leeds fans are not entirely sure about the 18-year-old.
Some are disappointed that the club is using money to sign youngsters who are not first-team ready while another is urging the Whites to “get it done”.
