Cody Drameh is reportedly closing in on a move to Leeds United after he entered the final 12 months of his Fulham contract – and the teenager may have just dropped an enormous hint that he is on his way to Elland Road.
Highly-rated Drameh, 18, is one of Fulham’s latest full-back talents – following in the footsteps of Ryan Sessegnon. The England Under-18 international is yet to make his senior bow, but already has 39 outings for the Under-23’s.
Last season, right-back Drameh played 17 times in Premier League 2 and although used at left-back, right wing and even centre-back, he managed to prove a somewhat creative force – laying on seven assists.
Last Friday, The Mail claimed Leeds were set to complete a deal for Drameh after Thursday night talks with Fulham saw the Whites agree a £1million package for the teen. The promise of game time has tempted Drameh.
Now, Drameh has dropped a hint that the aforementioned reports could be about to prove true. That is because he has followed Leeds on Instagram, despite only following 30 people in total.
TBR’s view – Drameh is a bargain at just £1m
An England Under-18 international on three occasions, versatile and potentially joining Leeds from one of their promoted rivals, to nab Drameh for just £1million would be an excellent bit of business by Victor Orta.
Following Leeds on Instagram really is a suggestion that he could be about to put pen to paper at Elland Road. Is he ready to become Luke Ayling’s immediate cover? Stuart Dallas is likely to be second choice.
But with the promise of game time, it is clear Marcelo Bielsa is a fan of Drameh and the Argentine has proved since joining Leeds that age is just a number. He could be an excellent find at such a low price.
