BBC Sport broadcaster Adam Pope has shared concerning news regarding a potential injury to Leeds United right-back Cody Drameh. 

The reporter was posting from his Twitter account during Leeds U21’s 5-3 victory at Tranmere Rovers in the Papa John’s Trophy on Tuesday evening.

Drameh had played the majority of the match, before being substituted in the 90th minute having picked up an injury challenging for the ball.

There has been no update from the club on the injury, but the player did try and continue before eventually leaving the field after being unable to shake the knock off.

And Pope’s tweet suggests that the 20-year-old has suffered a painful injury, with the London-born full-back having to be brought off, despite his side being down to ten men after Sam Greenwood was sent off.

“He hobbled back into defence but then went down again requiring treatment. Tranmere 3-5 #lufc U21s,” tweeted the BBC Sport reporter.

TIF Thoughts on Pope’s comments

We think that Leeds fans will be extremely concerned about Drameh’s fitness and will be hoping that it is simply just a small impact injury, so that the England U21 international’s progress is not stunted.

The young full-back has already made four Premier League appearances for the Whites according to Transfermarkt, suggesting that he is highly thought of and could break through into the senior set-up before long.

Therefore, we think that Jesse Marsch alongside the rest of the Leeds fanbase will be hoping that Drameh’s injury is not too serious, and he will be able to carry on making his impressive progress before long.
