Three Newcastle players Leeds United should swap for Sam Byram

Three Newcastle players Leeds United should swap for Sam Byram.

The future of Sam Byram at Leeds United remains in doubt with the player no closer to signing a new contract.

With his deal set to expire at the end of the season Premier League sides are circling, with The Mail yesterday citing interest from Newcastle United.

With their desire to sign Byram in mind, here are three players Leeds should attempt to acquire from the Toon as part of a swap deal...

Sylvain Marveaux

The Chronicle reported this week that Newcastle will not stand in Marveaux's way if the winger wants an exit after an underwhelming four-and-a-half seasons on Tyneside. Marveaux is out of contract at the end of the season and Leeds could get him at a knock down price, if he decides he feels he has a point to prove in England. The former Rennes player can feature on either flank, and might be worth taking a punt on.

Mike Williamson

Mike Williamson has his detractors, but when on loan earlier this season at Wolves he played well, and Newcastle saw fit to recall him from that spell. With the transfer window open he is available again, but Leeds would have to negotiate quickly because SkySports have reported Sheffield Wednesday have made an offer to try and sign him, with Wolves also hovering.

Yoan Gouffran

Striker Yoan Gouffran is in need of a fresh start, and Leeds could work out as a good destination for him. The Northern Echo reported earlier this season he was interesting both Hull City and Nottingham Forest, and a loan deal could work out for all parties. The former French under-21 international forward was also linked by The Mirror with a switch to Bournemouth.
