Three Everton players Leeds United should demand for Sam Byram

Elland Road Revie Stand

Everton are said to be ramping up interest in Leeds United ace Sam Byram.

Everton have increased their interest in Leeds United ace Sam Byram, claim The Sun, after an injury to defender Seamus Coleman.

Byram, 22, is into the final six months of his contract at Elland Road, and can play at both right-back and in midfield.

Here are three Everton players Leeds should try to acquire as part of any deal to take Byram to Goodison Park...

Aiden McGeady

Irish winger Aiden McGeady is hoping to secure a move away from Everton in order to earn a place at Euro 2016 with his country. He has been an afterthought this season for the Toffees, but for Leeds he would be a key player, and an excellent fit on the wing. His dribbling would give Leeds an extra dimension and help them get the best out of their strikers.

Leon Osman

It is just over three years since Leon Osman earned one of his two England caps, and the central midfielder has been an outstanding performer for the club over the past decade. He is now 34 and is yet to start a Premier League game this season, although has played four times and scored once in helping them reach the Capital One Cup semi-finals. His contract expires in June and Leeds could snap him up cheaply, and his desire to play regularly combined with experience could really be of benefit to the Whites.

Mason Holgate

Leeds will not have a chance of signing the promising youngster permanently, but a loan switch could help all parties. Holgate was a regular for Barnsley last season, but has been stuck in Everton's under-21 side. He is able to play at centre-back and at right-back, and will learn plenty at Leeds to help him in the future, and provide key cover for the Championship side.
