EFL boss coy on pursuit of Leeds United transfer

  • by

Russell Martin has remained coy on links suggesting that Swansea City are interested in signing Leeds United wing-back Cody Drameh.

Leeds kick off their Premier League campaign against Wolves at Elland Road, with Drameh looking set to be involved for the Whites with Luke Ayling and Stuart Dallas out.

Despite that, Drameh is attracting interest from clubs.

There’s been noted interest from Swansea in the 20-year-old, although their boss, Russell Martin, has remained fairly coy on whether a deal is doable for them – as quoted by the BBC’s Adam Pope.

“Some will be fairly real interest & some will be far out there and nowhere near it. We have lists for everything. We have a list for potential loan signings a list for potential transfer fees if we were to move anyone else on for large sums, hopefully we don’t.

“We have to be prepared for everything. We’re prepared. There’ll be plenty of lists & plenty of names. We just have to wait & see.”

Drameh pushed for a loan move at Leeds last season when chances in the first-team weren’t forthcoming.

Cardiff City was Drameh’s destination, with the right-back making 22 appearances and registering three assists.

It’s quite a complex situation with Drameh.

Right now, he’s needed at Leeds to cover Rasmus Kristensen and until Ayling is back in action at the end of August, it’s hard to imagine Jesse Marsch will allow Drameh to move.

Beyond that, though, a move does feel a possibility, at least until January when Leeds have a better grip on how their season will unfold.

Swansea, then, might be minded to just keeps tabs on the situation at Elland Road if they really want Drameh.

Does Drameh have a future at Leeds?
