Leeds United have reportedly made an offer for a teenager from rival Championship club, Fulham.
Cody Drameh, 17, is the latest academy prospect to be thriving at Fulham, but he has allegedly been subjected to a bid from Leeds United, according to a SportBible exclusive.
The teenager played for the U23s last season at right-back and has attracted interest from some of Europe’s finest clubs, including Liverpool, according to the previous report.
Goal’s Ronan Murphy tweeted that he was set to have a medical at Eintracht Frankfurt on June 13, but nothing is yet to be materialised.

According to ‘sources’ from SportBible, Leeds made an offer at around midday today.
This would not be the first youngster Fulham have missed out on in recent times, with Fulham losing out on the youngest player in to play in the Premier League – Harvey Elliot.
According to The Sun, Harvey Elliot, 16, will leave on a free and is a target for Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Losing out on Drameh will be a significant loss for Fulham, especially within the context of losing out on Harvey Elliot.
With the club making some poor decisions last summer by spending far too much without any sense of direction, being able to keep their young players is really important as they look to rebuild.
The club has a fantastic youth system and it will be damming if he moves to Leeds.
It’s a huge statement to the other youth players in the squad if two of their best feel like they need to move on.
