Head coach Jesse Marsch still wants right-back Cody Drameh to be a Leeds United player next season.

That’s according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, who says that the 21-year-old’s future will be decided n the summer, at the end of his now imminent loan move to Luton Town.

Drameh has again found game time hard to come by at Leeds this season, starting just one Premier League during game during the current campaign.

As a result, the right-back is now reportedly set to spend the rest of the season on loan in the Championship with Luton.

When he returns from his spell at Kenilworth Road in the summer, Drameh will be entering the final 12 months of his contract at Leeds, and it seems that period will be decisive in his long term future.

According to this latest update from Romano, a decision on the future of the right-back in the long term, will be taken in the summer, at the point when he enters the final year of his contract with the club.

For his part, Marsch is said to be keen to have Drameh return to Leeds, and play a part at Elland Road during the 2023/24 campaign.

You can understand why Marsch would want Drameh at Leeds for next season.

Luke Ayling is out of contract in the summer, meaning he is facing something of an uncertain future at Elland Road.

That may mean that Leeds need cover and competition at right-back for Rasmus Kristensen next season, and Drameh is someone can offer that if he stays at the club.

Indeed, that would ensure that Leeds are not under pressure to add in that position in the market – when they may have other business that needs doing – meaning they should surely be doing what they can to keep a highly promising young player at Elland Road long term.
