Leeds trio send emotional messages to Sam Byram on Twitter

Sam Byram

Sam Byram has left Championship outfit Leeds United for Premier League side West Ham United.

Leeds United trio Lewis Cook, Liam Cooper and Charlie Taylor have taken to social networking site Twitter to bid a fond farewell to Sam Byram.

Byram, who can play as a right-back or as a right-winger, has left Championship outfit Leeds for Premier League side West Ham.

The 22-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with the Hammers and could make his debut this weekend.


Congrats @sambyram93 fully deserved, its been a pleasure playing with you and all the best in the prem!

During his time at Leeds, Byram established himself as one of the best young players in the Championship.

The Englishman is at his best when played at right-back, and that is the position West Ham manager Slaven Bilic should deploy him in.

It could take the youngster some time to settle into the Premier League, and perhaps the Hammers fans will not see the best of him until next season.

Leeds are 17th in the Championship table at the moment with 32 points from 27 matches, eight points above the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, West Ham currently find themselves sixth in the Premier League table with 35 points from 22 games, just four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
