AFC Bournemouth have enquired about a summer move for Leeds United defender Cody Drameh.
That’s according to a report from Wales Online, who say there is a belief that Drameh would be capable of coping with the demands of Premier League football.
Drameh joined Cardiff on loan back in the January transfer window, in a move that seemingly went against the wishes of then Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Since then however, the right-back has stood out for Cardiff, proving to be a crucial figure in the Bluebirds’ run to secure their Championship status for another season.
Now it seems as though the 20-year-old’s form means that he is also starting to attract plenty of attention from elsewhere.
According to this latest update, Bournemouth – who sit second in the Championship and look well set for promotion back to the Premier League – have enquired about a deal for Drameh.
Bournemouth currently have Leif Davis on loan from Leeds, with the left-back having made 15 appearances in all competitions for the Cherries this season.
However, it is thought that Drameh would be open to a return to Cardiff for next season, if he is not going to get regular opportunities with Leeds.
It doesn’t feel like a huge surprise that Drameh is starting to attract this sort of interest.
The right-back has been outstanding during his time at Cardiff, showing he is well capable of playing week in, week out at a high level.
That is surely going to lead to even more clubs taking an interest in the right-back, given he can clearly do a job for them, and the fact there will be plenty who need to strengthen in that area.
With that in mind, you feel Leeds may now need to think rather hard, about whether or not it is they who should be looking to benefit from the abilities of Drameh from next season and beyond.
