Report: Swansea City interested in signing Leeds United's Sam Byram

Leeds United East Stand

Swansea City are reportedly looking for a right-sided player and see Leeds United's Sam Byram as a good fit.

Swansea City are said to be interested in signing Leeds United starlet Sam Byram according to a report in the South-Wales Evening Post

The Swans are reportedly looking to sign a right-sided player, and they have identified Byram as a potential recruit.

The 21-year-old is capable of playing at either right-back or in right-midfield, and manager Garry Monk is said to be an admirer of his talents.

Leeds would be loathed to lose the youngster, who has developed from a youth-teamer into a key figure in their senior side, but they are hampered by the fact that Byram's current contract expires in the summer.

Swansea, therefore, are said to be hopeful of landing him at a cut-price in the January transfer window, when they are said to be considering tabling an offer.

The Welsh side, who have made an impressive start to their Premier League season, are also said to be interested in signing Hull City's Ahmed Elmohamady by the South-Wales Evening Post

The Egyptian is also out of contract in the summer, and the same report says that Steve Bruce will not stand in his way if a top-tier club comes in for him.
