Sam Byram set for Leeds exit

Leeds United starlet Sam Byram is almost certain to leave the club for greener pastures after refusing to sign a new contract.

The full-back has a deal that is due to expire at the end of the current season, and he has been offered a contract extension several times.

However, Leeds United owner Massimo Cellini has now revealed that Byram rejected all offers as he wants to join a bigger club.

“Sam Byram is the only one that maybe thinks Leeds is too small for him.” Cellino told Sky Sport. “He maybe thinks he deserves to be in a bigger team and a bigger club, and maybe he’s right.

“But when I hear that a player from Leeds, with his agent, that he thinks that Leeds is not big enough for him, that he wants something bigger, I felt really embarrassed.

“He didn’t sign the new contract and he won’t sign it anymore. He’s been offered a contract a few times, he didn’t want to sign and I am deeply offended.”

Sam Byram has been repeatedly linked with England’s top sides and it is now only a question whether he is sold in January or allowed to leave on a free transfer come end of the season.

The highly rated youngster already boasts plenty of first team experience, having made 116 Championship appearances for Leeds United, scoring 6 goals in the process.

Byram, 22, can operate as a right-sided defender or right midfielder, and is predicted a bright future in the game.
