West Ham join race for Byram

West Ham United have joined the race to sign Leeds United full-back Sam Byram, according to the Express.

Everton have already had a bid accepted for the twenty-two-year old, though the Hammers are keen on beating the Merseyside outfit to his signature while Aston Villa are also interested.

The Toffees are the front runners, not least due to manager Roberto Martinez’s track record of working with young players.

Despite his young age, Byram has already racked up close to one hundred and fifty senior appearances while he has also scored ten goals for the Yorkshire club – the last of which coming in last month’s 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest while he bagged a brace in the 3-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers ten days earlier.

Steve Evans’ side saw there seven match unbeaten league run ended by Ipswich Town on Tuesday evening, and now sit twelve points behind sixth place Brighton and Hove Albion.
