We are excited to confirm the loan signing of Leeds United defender Cody Drameh for the remainder of the season.

The London-born right-back moved to Elland Road from Fulham in 2020 and has played three times for the club this season, including once in the Premier League. 

The 21-year-old joined fellow Championship outfit Cardiff City on loan last January and featured against the Hatters on our visit to south Wales in April. Despite making just 22 appearances, he was awarded the Bluebirds’ Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season for his impressive performances. 

Drameh, capped once at England U21 level, has become manager Rob Edwards’ first signing since taking charge in November.

Edwards, who along with assistant Richie Kyle worked with Drameh in his time with England U18 and U20s, said: “We have been aware of Cody for a long time. He had a great loan last season, did really well at Cardiff and he was really effective, so we know he’s more than ready for the Championship.

“He’s been in and around it with Leeds and has played in the Premier League, but he needs some first-team football now and we can offer that. We’re really excited to get him going.  

“He’s got fantastic quality. He’s really athletic. He can run forward and back, which is our game and something we need. We want to try and help him, give him a platform to try to improve. He’s hungry, he wants to do it and we’re very pleased to have him here.” 


Speaking to iFollow Hatters, Drameh said: "It is a great time to be at the club. You guys are flying so I’m just hoping to add a bit of quality to that, help us all reach the same goal and for us to get in the play-offs is the ideal goal."

On what Town fans can expect from him as a player, Drameh added: "I like to do my talking on the pitch. I’m one that believes actions speak louder than words so hopefully I can show that on the pitch, show what I can bring to the table in the next game."

We will have to wait for Tuesday's date with his former loan club Cardiff to see that, as Drameh is FA Cup-tied for Saturday having already played in the competition for Leeds.

Welcome to Kenilworth Road, Cody!
