Cody Drameh has insisted that he can’t wait to get going at Cardiff City after sealing his temporary Leeds United exit.
Leeds gave Drameh the green-light to move out on loan for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign, despite the fact that he’s made five senior appearances under Marcelo Bielsa this season.
It’s an opportunity that Drameh appears to be looking forward to.
Speaking to Cardiff’s official media channels, Drameh outlined his delight at joining the Bluebirds on a temporary basis.
“I’m very happy to be here, it’s a great feeling and I’m really excited to get going.
“I wanted to join because Cardiff City is a great club, first of all. From the first minute that we were linked they showed a real eagerness to get me in, which as a player is always great to hear.
“Everybody at the club seems to be really together, so hopefully I can be a part of that. I’m looking forward to showing people what I can bring to the table.”
There is no option for Cardiff to buy the 20-year-old at the end of his loan in South Wales, with Drameh’s long-term future set to be at Elland Road.
Leeds, meanwhile, will be relying on Luke Ayling and Stuart Dallas to cover the right-back position.
Drameh is a player that’s ambitious and that’s underlined by this move.
The youngster isn’t quite content with sitting on Leeds’ bench as cover for Ayling, he wants to get out and play football.
That admirable and, in the long-term, Leeds are going to benefit from this move.
Drameh will get plenty of exposure at Cardiff and will be able to show to Leeds that he’s good enough for more Premier League opportunities.
That’s going to be the aim, anyway.
