Leeds have completed the signing of full-back Drameh from Fulham

(Reuters) – Leeds United have signed 18-year-old full-back Cody Drameh from fellow promoted Fulham on a four-year deal, the Premier League club announced on Thursday.

Drameh, who has been a regular for Fulham’s under-23 side, made 17 appearances in the Premier League 2 development competition last season. He also played three times in the EFL Trophy.

Leeds did not disclose the transfer fee, but British media reported that the second-tier champions paid an initial fee of around £400,000 ($524,720) for Drameh, who has been capped three times by England under 18 years.

Earlier this week, Leeds re-signed winger Jack Harrison on a season-long loan from Manchester City and striker Joe Gelhardt on a four-year deal from Wigan Athletic.

Midfielder Jamie Shackleton, 20, has extended his stay at the club until 2024.

Leeds ended a 16-year wait to return to English football’s top flight. The new league season starts on September 12.
