Leeds United's Sam Byram speaks about the club's recent new signings

Leeds United 2

The Leeds United player believes the new additions at the club - both on the pitch and off it - are all good.

Leeds United’s Sam Byram has been speaking to the club’s official website about the new faces at Elland Road.

The club have been busy both in terms of recruiting new players and employing new backroom staff and there could be plenty more incomings in the months ahead.

But whatever happens, Byram is clearly excited to get back to work and meet the men who are looking to help the side earn promotion back to the Premier League after far too long away.

“It shows that the club are making moves in the right direction,” Byram told Leedsunited.com. “They’re bringing people in that have got experience and young players to add to the squad. These are all good things.”

Leeds have already signed goalkeeper Charlie Horton from Cardiff City and striker Lee Erwin from Motherwell; but that could be just the start of the summer recruitment drive with new manager Uwe Rosler well aware of the challenges facing him.

The Championship is arguably the most difficult league to get out of in Europe and any one of a number of sides could push for promotion next season.

Leeds will be hoping to be one of the three that ultimately achieves that and Byram will be key, whether he is playing at right-back or on the right wing, where he shone in the second half of last season.
