Sam Byram: Poised to make Everton move

Leeds full-back Sam Byram is expected to finalise a move to Everton early this week after the player passed a medical and agreed personal terms with the Toffees.

The Whites accepted a bid of £3.7million for the player – with an additional £1.3million to be paid in add-ons – and he travelled to Merseyside for talks over the weekend after missing Leeds’ 2-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

Byram, is also wanted by West Ham and Newcastle, with Leeds boss Steve Evans confirming over the weekend that there were a number of clubs interested in the player.

But while the Magpies are thought to have cooled their interest, West Ham were still thought to be trying to negotiate a deal with Leeds owner Massimo Cellino.

That leaves Everton in pole position to sign the player and it is expected the player will officially put pen to paper in the next few days.

Byram, who has made 143 appearances for Leeds since making his debut in 2012 and is out of contract at Elland Road at the end of the season.
