'Absolute joke': Some Leeds fans react after hearing who Bielsa's allowing to leave

A number of Leeds United fans have criticised the speculation claiming Whites gem Cody Drameh is set to leave Elland Road on loan.

Several journalists have reported that Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has allowed the Elland Road youngster to link up with Cardiff.

On Tuesday morning, Fabrizio Romano claimed Leeds and Cardiff have officially agreed a loan move.

Drameh will undergo his medical tomorrow before being unveiled at his new club for the remainder of the season.

Romano did nonetheless make clear that Leeds see him as a big player for the future and that the deal has no buy option.

Meanwhile, The Mirror’s David Anderson claimed the Whites were initially reluctant to let Drameh leave.

However, Bielsa decided he has enough bodies at right-back with Ayling and Dallas, reported Anderson.

Leeds are currently in the midst of an injury crisis, and Drameh has featured in the first-team on a couple of occasions this season.

The 20-year-old is a right-back by trade but can also play at left-back, at centre-back and even in defensive midfield.

Admittedly, Drameh has looked a little raw at times and could certainly do with some experience to improve his game.

However, with Leeds hovering eight points above the bottom three and missing numerous key players, it seems a risky call.

Here’s what some Leeds fans have made of the speculation:
