Cardiff City are awaiting Leeds United’s decision on whether to grant Cody Drameh the opportunity to move out of Elland Road on loan.

Leeds were beaten 2-0 by West Ham in the FA Cup yesterday afternoon, with Drameh stepping off the bench to replace Junior Firpo during the second-half.

News broke after the game that Cardiff were interested in taking the right-back on loan, with a claim that the move was imminent.

On the back of that news emerging, Phil Hay has shared an update on Twitter, confirming the interest in Drameh from Cardiff.

However, he outlines that Leeds are yet to make a decision on the transfer, as Drameh proves to be extra padding to an already thin squad.

The 20-year-old has made a handful of appearances across all competitions this season, including three in the Premier League.

It makes little sense for Leeds to trigger Drameh’s loan move at this moment in time.

Only yesterday we saw that he’s on the cusp of the first-team and needs to be on the bench for a reason.

Simply, it would be ridiculous looking at the squad now and triggering his exit.

If Leeds were to bring in a replacement, it would be different and, then, you could see the benefit of a loan for Drameh.

That doesn’t feel forthcoming, though, which makes this all the more strange.
