Leeds United youngster Sam Byram has been linked with a move to Everton in the January transfer window.

Leeds United youngster Sam Byram trained with his teammates today, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.

It has been reported that the 22-year-old, who can play as a right-back or as a right-winger, held talks with Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday. Leeds have reportedly accepted a £3.7 million bid from the Premier League side to sell Byram.

“The 22-year-old underwent a medical and is understood to have discussed personal terms with the Premier League side on Sunday,” states the report in The Yorkshire Evening Post.

“As of yet neither club has confirmed whether a deal has been completed, explaining Byram’s presence at Thorp Arch on Monday.”

It is interesting that despite (reportedly) undergoing a medical and agreeing personal terms with Everton, Byram trained with Leeds today.

Has the youngster changed his mind? Or was he at Thorp Arch mainly to say goodbye to his Leeds teammates?

Byram will be a massive loss for Leeds if he leaves, as he is one of the best young players in the Championship.

The 22-year-old scored three goals and created 39 chances in 39 Championship appearances for the Whites last season.

So far this campaign, the Englishman has scored three goals and created 24 chances in 22 league appearances for the West Yorkshire outfit.

Byram has a pass accuracy of 75% and a shot accuracy of 33%, and has won 34 headers, nine dribbles and 15 tackles.
