Some Leeds United fans are hoping that they can hijack Nottingham Forest’s move for Sam Byram.

The Sun claim that Forest are close to signing Byram, as they look to improve their defence.

However, Leeds fans have not given up hope that he could return to Elland Road.

And there is a growing clamour for Leeds to bring back Byram and play him at wing-back next term.

Byram left Leeds back in 2016, but things haven’t gone exactly to plan for him since his move to West Ham.

The right-back has gone from being a key member of Leeds’ first-team, to struggling to even get a place on the substitutes’ bench at the London Stadium.

Byram seemingly needs to move on loan to aid his development, and Forest are winning the race for his signature as things stand.

Forest have spent big already this summer, but Leeds also appear willing to invest heavily, following the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa as manager.
