Luton Town predicted to table bid for Leeds United right-back Cody Drameh, could be accepted - pundit

Pundit Carlton Palmer has predicted Luton Town to make a “good offer” for Leeds United youngster Cody Drameh this summer.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan from the Whites to the Championship club, having made the switch in January.

Drameh has excelled at his temporary club since the move, registering two assists from his 14 appearances at right wing-back.

“Drameh has played regularly for Luton since his loan move in January and has impressed and excelled as a right wing-back,” Palmer told Football League World. “He is known as a right-back but has done very well for Luton in that position.

“He’s a very talented young player so I can’t see why Leeds would want to let him go. Should Leeds get relegated, you would assume he would get regular game time on his return but money talks in football so you never know, if Luton get promoted via the play-offs they might make a good offer and Leeds might accept it.

“We’ll have to wait and see but I would be very surprised if Leeds were to let one of their bright, young players leave the football club permanently.”

Future star

It’s definitely a strange situation that the youngster finds himself in, with his parent club involved in a Premier League relegation fight while his temporary club is vying for promotion to the same league.

Leeds are playing with fire at the bottom end of the table, but also when it comes to the future of Drameh, who they could lose this summer if they aren’t careful.

First team right-backs Rasmus Kristensen and Luke Ayling haven’t exactly convinced supporters of their reliability at the back, with Drameh proving he can operate at both ends of the pitch.

It is definitely a potential transfer to watch this summer, with Leeds set to be in desperate need of cash should they be relegated to the Championship.

Luton, on the other hand, who are third in the Championship table, will have plenty of money to spend if they are promoted to the Premier League, and Drameh will be right at the top of their list in such a scenario.
