Sam Byram

Leeds have accepted an offer of 3.7 million for Sam Byram - but could get more with future add on fees.

This departure was inevitable once contract negotiations broke down with Prem clubs sniffing around.

Could be good business if there is a good lad coming through the system and the money is invested to improve our weak spots.

I guess we were all expecting this.

I think there's still unfulfilled promise there. I've always reckoned he'd be better as a midfielder or a forward. Everton could be quite a good club for him.

Yep good luck to the lad, hope we spend the money wisely (and not as in Dennis Wise style i mean)

Seems that WestHam are trying to lure him to Upton Park too.

Good luck to him. Shame we cant keep him but we are a selling club still.
Late Doors

Looks like its hammer time for the lad. I Remember going down to Upton Park where we were chanting " is that the Rio stand" in reference to the Ferdinand transfer. Wonder what they'd chant to us ?
Heyho

Sad really in some respect. We are a club lacking any aspirations so, as we have for several years now, we sell young players we should be looking to build a team around that can take us back into the top flight. This has happened too often now and the top flight is littered with decent ex Leeds home grown cast offs. No world beaters maybe but could have done a good job for us in the Premiership

Delph, Howson, Snodgrass and Gradel would have made a hell of a midfield. With Johnson as sub if things weren't going well.

Those names sprung to mind along with Milner.

I agree - every time I watch a Premier League game with one of "our" players, I can't help but shake my head and think about what could have been.

It's probably the right time for Byram to move on though - I'm guessing his "Will he, won't he?" situation had been undermining things somewhat.

Everton might be a pretty good fit too.

How the chuff Bradley Johnson plays in the prem or prem bound teams i just do not know. Big lad, up and down but nothing else.
fartcatcher

Yes that's surprised me as well. i guess he has just made the best out of a modest amount of talent.

Still whupps the ass off some of the donkeys we've had since though*.

Just realised he went to West Ham instead of Everton.

I think Everton would've been the better choice - nearer roots and all that.

Maybe - but at Everton he was to be used as a stop gap this season for injured players (names escape me at this instant) and would be down the order once they returned, whereas at West Ham there seemed to be a more immediate first team place for him.

Whilst I think he would have made it eventually at Everton under Martinez, I also rate Bilic as a manager who will bring young players on quickly if they have the potential.

And don't forget that he is an Essex boy and some of his family support The Hammers.

Ah, that makes a bit more sense then - I thought he was a local to Leeds.
