Leeds United make decision on Cody Drameh amid impending Djed Spence arrival - Sky Sports

Cody Drameh will be allowed to leave Leeds United before the summer transfer deadline, according to Sky Sports.

The publication reported on its website on Tuesday (29 August) that the right-back can leave either on loan or permanently.

The decision comes as the Whites close in on the loan signature of fellow right-back Djed Spence, who is undergoing a medical ahead of a move from Tottenham Hotspur [Sky Sports, 29 August].

“Leeds will allow Cody Drameh to leave on loan or on a permanent deal with Spence’s imminent arrival,” according to Sky Sports.

“It has been clear for some time the player would not accept a new deal and the arrival of Spence clears the path for a move away from Elland Road.”


Leeds have already lost several players in the summer transfer window, with key men like Rodrigo, Robin Koch and Tyler Adams among others all moving on, either permanently or temporarily.

Also moving on was Rasmus Kristensen, leaving Luke Ayling and Drameh to battle it out for the right-back spot under Daniel Farke. And it is the experience of Ayling that the manager has opted for in these early stages of the new season.

Still, Drameh could have provided a superb deputy, but the youngster clearly views his future as being away from Elland Road, leaving the Whites with no decision but to find a replacement.

They have now done that in the form of Spence, leaving Drameh free to go and explore his options elsewhere, be it on loan or permanently.

Spence has superb experience at the age of just 23, and his signature should excite Leeds fans amid their disappointing start to their first campaign back in the Championship for a handful of years.

In other Leeds United news, the club’s bid to sign one player has hit the skids after a “violent incident” happened on Tuesday.
