For the second successive season Drameh has impressed on loan in the Championship
While all eyes will be on Leeds United’s bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League this weekend, there are some Whites players fighting for more positive rewards.
21-year-old right-back Cody Drameh will line up for Luton Town on Saturday hoping to help the Hatters achieve promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history.
For the second time in two seasons, the 21-year-old is impressing on loan in the Championship. Despite playing less than half of Cardiff City’s league games last term, Drameh cleaned up at the Bluebirds’ end-of-season awards as their undisputed best player.
Now Drameh has established himself in a Luton side who are favourites to beat Coventry City in the Championship play-off final and a big decision awaits both Leeds and the player this summer when it comes down to his future.
Regardless of what division they end up in, Luton will likely be keen to retain Drameh’s services either permanently or on another loan deal.
But Drameh will want clarity over his role at Leeds going forward, after struggling for game time in the first half of this season and amid the subsequent struggles of both Luke Ayling and Rasmus Kristensen in the role during the second half of the campaign.
Meanwhile, fellow Leeds United youngster Alfie McCalmont will also be going for promotion this weekend, as Carlisle United take on Stockport County in the League Two play-off final on Sunday.
“It was unbelievable,” he told Carlisle’s official website. “Getting to Wembley is something that doesn’t come around often, and it’s something we’ve worked hard for.
“We’ve talked about it as a team, and it was something I thought about when signing here, because obviously the aim was to get promoted. To be going to Wembley is even more special so I’m over the moon, and we’ve just got a big job to do on Sunday now.
“Like I say, when I signed here that’s where the club was at, in a good position to get promoted, and obviously to see that out from January and for it still to be going, with the position we’re in now, is credit to the players and all the staff.
“We know we’ve got a big week of training ahead and that we need to prepare ourselves in the best way that we can so that come Sunday we’re ready.”
