Sam Byram looking forward to next season with Leeds United

Leeds United will finish their 2014-15 Championship campaign with a home match against Rotherham United on Saturday.

Leeds United defender Sam Byram has told LUTV that he is already looking forward to next season.

The West Yorkshire outfit's 2014-15 campaign will come to an end on Saturday, when they take on Rotherham United at Elland Road.

“It has been a long season with lots of ups and downs on and off the pitch, but it would be nice to finish with a win, have a good summer, rest and come back fit for next season,” Byram told LUTV.

Byram has been one of the best players for Leeds this season and has developed impressively over the course of the campaign.

The Englishman started the season as a right-back, but over the past few months he has been deployed mainly as a right-winger.

The 21-year-old has excelled in both positions, leading to Premier League outfit Liverpool showing interest in him, according to The Daily Star.

Byram has scored three goals and created 38 chances in 38 Championship appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 43%.

The Leeds star has won 87 headers, 20 dribbles and 56 tackles in those 38 league matches.

Leeds are currently 15th in the Championship table with 55 points from 45 matches and cannot finish any higher in the standings.
