Leeds United recently sold Sam Byram to West Ham United.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has suggested to talkSPORT that the club do not plan to sell any more players in the January transfer window.

Sam Byram, who can play as a right-back or as a right-winger, has left Leeds for Premier League club West Ham United.

Many fans could be fearing that the 22-year-old’s departure could be one of many this month.

While Evans has not completely written off selling other players, the Scot has suggested that Leeds will do their best to avoid that situation this month.

“I think I can give them [Leeds fans] every assurance as much as every head coach or manager can,” the former Rotherham United manager told talkSPORT when asked if Leeds could sell more players this month.

“I don't get involved in the financial aspects here and I didn’t at Rotherham United. From my point of view, I know every player in the world, from Ronaldo to Bale, they have a price.

“But what I would say is it would take a lot of diamonds and a lot of goal to take any youngsters from here. It is certainly the intention from the president and myself to build with them.”

Leeds have some of the best young players in the Championship, such as Charlie Taylor, Alex Mowatt and Lewis Cook.

With the Whites unlikely to finish in the top six this season, Premier League clubs could be looking to make moves.

Over the years, the West Yorkshire outfit have sold some of the best players, but one suspects that they will not sell anyone else this month unless he is surplus to requirements.
