Leeds United and West Ham United fans react on Twitter after Sam Byram seals switch

West Ham Upton Park

Sam Byram moved from Leeds United to West Ham United earlier today.

West Ham United’s and Leeds United’s supporters' reactions to Sam Byram’s move today have been very different on social media site Twitter.

The Hammers have completed the signing of Byram on a four-and-a-half year deal, after beating Everton to the right-back’s signature.

Byram is expected to challenge for a first team place in the Hammers' squad, as he looks to force James Tomkins out Slaven Bilic’s starting line up.

The 22-year-old has played regular football for the past four seasons, and West Ham fans are excited to see the youngster in action.

Leeds fans, on the other hand, are gutted to have some one of their key players leave Elland Road.

Byram has progressed through Leeds’ youth academy to become an integral player in their senior squad, and he joins a long list of talented players to leave Elland Road in recent times.

Leeds fans have wished Byram well for the future though, and they believe he will make an impact in the Premier League.
