Sam Byram sends message to Leeds fans

Leeds United star is thrilled his recent performances have been recognised.

Sam Byram is thrilled his recent performances for Leeds United have been recognised.

The 22-year-old is up for PFA Player of the Month after a superb December.

He scored two goals against Wolves before netting against Nottingham Forest, and providing an assist for Chris Wood in the recent 2-2 draw with Derby County.

He sent a message on Twitter encouraging fans to vote for him and help him win the award.

It has been a tough season for the youngster, who has not been picked at right-back, and has only just forced his way back into the team on the wing. Early in the season he was a shadow of the player who impressed last season, but his recent displays have underlined that class is very much permanent, and form temporary.

Unfortunately Byram did not use his social media account to address his future. His contract expires at the end of this current season, and this transfer window is the last chance for Leeds to cash in on him under their terms, otherwise if he leaves on a free then the matter will be resolved by tribunal as he has come through the club's academy system and is under 23.

Winning a Player of the Month award, and even just his nomination, will help add to his glowing reputation.
