Leeds United likely to demand high fee as they look to sell Cody Drameh in January transfer window

Leeds United are reportedly likely to demand a “high fee” for defender Cody Drameh in January with Newcastle, Borussia Dortmund and Middlesbrough among the suitors.

According to Teeside Live [13 December], Leeds would want to be decently compensated for the 21-year-old right-back.

Yorkshire Evening Post [28 November] claimed that Drameh is set to leave in January and the contract extension that was once on the table for him is no longer available.

Bad decision

Drameh is one of the best under-23 players at Elland Road and Leeds are making a mistake by letting him leave and not offering first-team minutes to him.

Luke Ayling’s on the wrong side of 30 and will have recurring injury issues in the future so it makes sense to part ways with him.

The 21-year-old, on the other hand, is capable of playing in multiple positions and has gone out to prove himself on loan as well.

He won the Player of the Year for Cardiff City despite only joining them halfway through the season and surely deserves to be a second-choice at Elland Road.

There’s a reason why clubs like Newcastle and Dortmund want him and we think Leeds are making a huge mistake in letting him go.

They may be compensated with a decent fee in January but in the long run they will regret it and Victor Orta will be the one who’ll be answerable.

In other Leeds United news, the club are set to stay in touch with the agent of a striker at a big club ahead of a potential January transfer.
