Plenty of Leeds United fans have been reacting to confirmation of right-back Cody Drameh’s latest move.

The 20-year-old has joined Championship side Cardiff City on loan until the end of the season, something which appears to have generated an emotive response among fans of the Elland Road club.

Having joined Leeds’ youth setup from Fulham back in the summer of 2020, Drameh’s form has seen him work his way into the first-team picture this season.

The full-back has made five appearances across all competitions for the Whites, and is now set to get more opportunities elsewhere in the next few months.

Despite Leeds’ own injury issues this season, it was announced on Wednesday night that Drameh has joined Cardiff on a temporary basis until the end of the current campaign.

Cardiff currently sit 20th in the Championship table, four points clear of the relegation zone, and are next in action on Saturday afternoon, when they host Blackburn Rovers, a game Drameh could make his debut in.

Taking to Twitter to react to news of Drameh’s temporary departure, plenty of Leeds fans were keen to give their thoughts on the deal.

Here, we take a look at what some of them had to say.

You can certainly understand the concerns of Leeds fans when it comes to this deal.

For Drameh himself, this should be a good move, given the first-team opportunities it should provide him with, allowing him to develop and improve even further.

However, with the injuries Leeds are struggling with at the minute, this deal is making a threadbare squad even thinner, which could come back to haunt them if they suffer any more setbacks.

It is hard therefore, not to feel as though the club have taken something of a risk here, and it will be interesting to see what business they are able to do in the next few weeks, to ensure that it pays off.
