Good Morning. It's Wednesday 12th January, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


Cardiff City win race for Drameh loan move

Cardiff City have won the race to take Cody Drameh on loan for the rest of the season. The 20yo right was in high demand, with Nottingham Forest and Swansea City also credited with interest. Leeds were not keen to see the former Fulham starlet leave, but after talks with his agent agreed to their request that first team football would be in his best interest. He will undergo a medical this morning, and is set to play against Blackburn Rovers at the weekend. Leeds have made it very clear that Drameh is not for sale, and is seen as the long term successor to Luke Ayling.





Leeds fans hoping for an Elland Road Covid outbreak

As things stand, Leeds will be without twelve players for their second visit of the week to the London Stadium. They have only eight senior outfield players fit (Luke Ayling, Adam Forshaw, Robin Koch, Raphinha, Stuart Dallas, Daniel James, Jack Harrison and Mateusz Klich). Should anyone register positive for Covid, it would mean they would be within their rights to have the game called off.

Premier League rules state that clubs may request a postponement if they cannot field one goalkeeper and 13 outfield players, but only if Covid has contributed. The club intervened last month when a covid outbreak hit Elland Road, and successfully swerved the visit to Anfield and the visit of Aston Villa.

Patrick Bamford and Rodrigo are both battling to be fit for Sunday's game, but in all likelihood, they'd be doing well if they made the bench.





I had to try and reset myself - Harrison

Speaking on Soccer AM, Leeds winger Jack Harrison has admitted to a drop in form this season, but has listed Covid and a variety of niggles as the answer as to why the 25yo has not managed to replicate his performances of last season. In 14 league appearances, he has registered 1 goal, and one assist, and has a disappointing overall rating of 6.41 this term. In comparison, the former Citeh ace registered 8 assists, and 8 goals last season, and a respectable 6.96 score.

I've been working really hard all season, I think I've been unfortunate with injuries, I had COVID and just being out with one thing and the other - I'm hoping to get some more [goals] from here on out.

You start questioning all the things that have worked for you in the past and you start to question 'should I continue doing this?' because I like to do a lot of extra work as well, and I started thinking maybe this is a bit more detrimental.

I had to try and reset myself, think outside of the box and try to find those things that do work for me 100% and continue doing them." "You just have to stick to what you know is right and eventually it'll turn in your favour.

And Dallas is the No.2 in every position ;-)
