Byram joined West Ham from Leeds United in January 2016, but the right-back failed to establish himself in the Hammers’ starting lineup.
The 24-year-old, who can also operate as a right-winger, also had injury issues during his time at the Hammers.
Forest are aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship this season, and the signing of Byram on a season-long loan deal from West Ham in the summer transfer window makes sense.
The Englishman is proven at the Championship level, having been a success during his time at Leeds, and Forest fans should be excited.
It seems that West Ham fans have not given up on Byram despite the right-back’s struggles at the London Stadium, and hope that he returns to the Premier League club a better player.
Forest fans are pleased to see Byram signed on loan this summer.

Smart move. Hopefully he grows as a player and can come back when Zaba hangs his boots up!— alex (@alex_cvb) August 10, 2018
If we can't get a decent fee for Byram then a loan is perfect as a good season in the championship will mean he is either sold or we will keep him.— Dave RedgewellOS2016 (@redgewd) August 10, 2018

The Byram signing is a good one but also an important one. If it didn't happen after all this time it would've felt like the one that got away in a very impressive summer. Good work #nffc #signingnumber13— Tom Denman (@denman1865) August 11, 2018
