Adding an external SD Card Module and seperate LCD Controller

Hello Forum,

I want to change the LCD on my 3D Printer.
Currently I use one of the LCD2004 controllers with an integrated SD card slot that comes out to the side.
But I want to use one of the full graphic ones with a LCD12864. I don't like the touchscreens because they lack of some settings I can control via the LCD

But I also want to enclose the printer (at least partially) thus the SD card slot sticking out the side would be blocked off by an acrylic sheet.

So something like the MKS mini LCD12864 with the SD slot sticking out to the front would be great but I dont want to have the smaller display (on my big machine it would look quite jerky).

So my question is: If I get an external SD card reader breakout board how do I wire it up with something like these
Or are there any other simple solutions?

Thanks in advance for your help
