Sky Sports: Leeds United agree loan deal with Luton Town for Cody Drameh, Cardiff City eye hijack
Leeds United have agreed a deal with Luton Town for the Championship club take defender Cody Drameh on loan this month, though Cardiff are attempting to make a late push to hijack the move, according to Sky Sports News.
According to Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth [23 January], the defender finds the current opportunities at the club unacceptable and is looking for opportunities elsewhere.
The 21-year-old has only featured twice for the Whites first team this season, with one of them coming in the Barclays Premier League, and the player can be forgiven for seeking to develop elsewhere.
And according to Sky Sports News [25 January], Championship high-flyers Luton Town have agreed a deal with the Yorkshire club to take the young full-back on loan for the remainder of the season.
Though, Cardiff are looking to make a late attempt to sign him, but would need a new manager at the helm first following the sacking of Mark Hudson [Sky Sports, 14 January].
Drameh has long been considered one of the bright young talents at Leeds United, and it’s only right he looks to continue his development and further his learning elsewhere.
The Sky Bet Championship presents him with the ideal platform and opportunity to mature and hone his craft even further, seeing as he’s not getting it at Leeds.
This is a move that benefits both parties, and joining a team doing tremendously well in the Championship is the perfect platform for Drameh to strut his talent.
Who knows, he could help Luton Town gain a surprise promotion from the English second division. What’s more crucial for him though, is he’ll be joining a team riding high in terms of squad morale, and confidence meaning he’d have no problems bedding in and finding his feet.
The 21-year-old could well return to the Whites a much better and more refined talent ready to claim a starting berth in the team next season. This is the best move for him.
In other Leeds United news, an in-demand January target may have already played his last game ahead of a potential move.
