Leeds United unlikely to send Cody Drameh on loan if they suffer relegation

Leeds United are “unlikely” to send Cody Drameh on loan again next season if they suffer relegation at the end of the season, according to Wales Online.

Drameh enjoyed a fantastic loan spell at Cardiff City and the Bluebirds want him to join again next season.

Bournemouth have made an enquiry as well, but chances are high he will stay with the Whites, irrespective of their league status.

Makes sense

Drameh has returned to Elland Road after the end of a successful loan spell.

However, the right-back is ineligible to play for the Whites, having played elsewhere since January.

Cardiff are expected to make another attempt to persuade Leeds to send him on loan again, but Jesse Marsch will love to have a strong look at him in the pre-season before making the final call.

In hindsight, it may seem like Drameh has missed a glorious opportunity to stake a place in the side. Luke Ayling made a stupid challenge and he is suspended for the rest of the season.

This would have been a perfect opportunity for Drameh to show his class to his manager, but he can’t play now, having forced a move to Cardiff in January.

The 20-year-old won the club’s Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards at the end-of-season bash, and has been described as an “exciting” talent [Yorkshire Evening Post].

Leeds are 18th in the table, sharing same points with Burnley, having played a game more.

In other Leeds United news, a first-team regular has turned down a new Elland Road contract and will sign it only under one condition.
