Leeds snapped up the young right-back from Fulham last year and he has been impressing for the Under-23s side since he moved to Elland Road.


Drameh finally got his opportunity in the senior team on Tuesday night when he started Leeds’ 2-0 defeat at Arsenal and lasted the full 90 minutes.



The defender acknowledged the role of the people around him who played a part in getting him to the moment where he made his debut for Leeds.


But he conceded that it was a bittersweet moment as Arsenal taught the Whites a tough lesson at the Emirates despite the happiness he felt at playing his first game for the Leeds senior team.



Drameh said on BBC Radio Leeds: “It is sort of bittersweet.


“First of all, I want to thank God, thank the closest ones near to me, thank my family for getting me to this moment.



“It was a really tough game against a really good Arsenal side.


“They made it tough for us but as I said it was bittersweet as I am like really happy that I made my debut.”


Drameh has made the Leeds Premier League matchday squads a few times this season and will hope to make his league debut at some point in the near future.
