Leeds United: Cody Drameh benefit despite unfortunate Stuart Dallas injury

Leeds United youngster Cody Drameh has sent manager Jesse Marsch a reminder of his quality in a timely moment.

The right-back was sent on loan to Championship outfit Cardiff City in January and it seems he has impressed their. Indeed, he’s done enough to recently win the club’s Young Player of the Season in his short spell.

His impressive development could be big boost for Leeds in light of the recent injury suffered by Stuart Dallas.

TIF has decided to take a look at how it could all play out.

Dallas concern

Sadly, the Northern Ireland international suffered a femoral fracture in the club’s recent Premier League game with Manchester City. Such was the seriousness of the injury, Dallas was kept overnight at Leeds General Infirmary and will now travel to London for surgery and further tests.

It’s the sort of injury that will certainly rule him out for the rest of the season could also have an impact on the following campaign too – especially if he won’t be fit enough to play any part in pre-season.

Throughout this season, Dallas has played in both fullback positions, often playing on the right-side of the defence. If he is unfit in the early stages of next season, the Whites may want another option in that area of the pitch to challenge and provide back up to Luke Ayling.

This is where Drameh can come in.

Does Cody Drameh deserve a chance in the Leeds team next season?





Cardiff form

As mentioned before, things have gone pretty well from the young defender over in Wales. Playing on the right flank, Drameh has notched up three assists in 21 Championship matches, earning the aforementioned club award along the way.

Taking that into account, there should be little doubting his potential quality. Beyond that, he has also been tipped to have a big future, be it at Leeds or elsewhere.

However, it can be hard to break into a Premier League first-team on a regular basis – which is actually why the right-back wanted to leave on loan in the first place.

Now though, with Dallas set for an uncertain next period of his career, Drameh can take this chance to present himself as a strong squad option for Jesse Marsch.

Add to that the fact that Ayling hasn’t always been at his best this term, and the 20-year-old may well fancy his chances when he returns to Leeds in the summer.
