Leeds United's two-goal hero Sam Byram admits frustration, thanks fans

Leeds United East Stand

The youth team produce is involved in lengthy contract negotiations with the club.

 

Leeds United took on Wolves at Molineux last night with Sam Byram back in the starting XI.

The right sided operator has been out of action in recent times as his contract situation continues to look no closer to a resolution.

The 22-year-old is out of contract in the summer and has rejected two offers from the club so far and his form was impacted by the off-field issues.

But he roared back into contention yesterday. He scored twice as Leeds defeated Wolves 3-2, with Stuart Dallas bagging the other goal.

After the game he spoke about his current situation and gave little away. He is quoted by the official Leeds United website as stating:

“At the minute I’m just concentrating on trying to get back into the team.

“I’m working unbelievably hard off the pitch.

“It paid off on Thursday night and I’m just glad to get the three points.

“It’s been frustrating for me but it was nice to be back in the team and to help the lads get a win."

He went on to thank the Leeds fans for their support on such away days:

“The support has been brilliant; you could see how many turned up. It’s an unbelievable following and it really helps us on our away trips.”

Byram is being watched by a number of Premier League clubs but is hoping for assurances over a first-team future at Elland Road before signing a new deal.

If he can continue to perform like that then Leeds and Byram will surely be able to come to an greement that should be to the benefit of both parties.
