Sources: Leeds to complete fifth summer signing after terms agreed
Leeds United are set to complete the signing of rising star Cody Drameh after he arrived for a medical and to finalise the paperwork of his move from Fulham.
The west Londoners have given the go-ahead for the England Under-18 international defender to put the finishing touches to a transfer to Elland Road.
A Leeds source has told Football Insider the club had a bid accepted for Drameh, 18, last week and have also agreed personal terms with him.
The deal is set to cost up to £1million including performance-related add-ons.
Drameh will become Leeds’ fifth summer signing after the captures of Helder Costa, Illan Meslier, Joe Gelhardt and Jack Harrison.
Costa and Meslier converted their 2019-20 loans into permanent deals last month, Gelhardt signed on Monday for £1m plus add-ons and Harrison has returned for a third consecutive season-long loan from Manchester City.

Leeds are now confident of unveiling Drameh in the next 48 hours.
This comes amid a blizzard of activity at Elland Road that included versatile youngster Jamie Shackleton signing a new four-year contract on Wednesday.
In addition, Leeds are also set to announce that manager Marcelo Bielsa has agreed a new contract ahead of their Premier League return.
As revealed by Football Insider last Saturday, discussions are centred on the length of the deal, which could be for an initial year with the option to then extend for a further 12 months.
