Trevor Sinclair reacts to Byram's West Ham debut, comments on Leeds experience

Trevor Sinclair is delighted that West Ham have managed to land Sam Byram.

West Ham's new signing Sam Byram made his debut for the club on Saturday - and Trevor Sinclair was certainly impressed with his display.

Byram, 22, joined West Ham from Leeds in midweek, no doubt pleasing his West Ham-supporting family, having been born in Essex - and after Carl Jenkinson picked up an injury against Manchester City on Saturday, Byram was thrust straight into Premier League action.

The right back performed well even against big-name substitute Raheem Sterling late on, and played his part in West Ham's impressive 2-2 draw against City; a game Slaven Bilic's men could even have won on another day.

Byram looks set to be Jenkinson's replacement come the end of the season, but he may now receive an instant run in the side, depending on the severity of the Arsenal loanee's injury.

After the game, former West Ham ace Trevor Sinclair took to Twitter to comment on Byram's performance - and also poked fun at Premier League rivals Everton.

Toffees boss Roberto Martinez told The Guardian that Byram wasn't the right player for his side, despite the suggestion that the full back actually snubbed a move to Goodison Park in favour of West Ham.

Sinclair took great enjoyment from that, mocking Martinez's comments after Byram's impressive debut performance at Upton Park, whilst he also noted that his experience of playing in the Leeds United first team on a regular basis meant that he came into the game as a substitute and settled down immediately.
