It has been reported that Championship club Forest will continue their pursuit of Byram on a season-long loan deal from Premier League side West Ham.

 

Despite the summer transfer window now closed, the Reds can still make loan signings until the end of the month.

The former Leeds United defender was reportedly in Nottingham on Thursday and is claimed to be keen on a move to Aitor Karanka’s side this summer.
