The 19-year-old, who has played 35 games for Leeds this season, has been linked with a move away from the club during the January transfer window, with both Everton and Liverpool rumoured to be interested.

Byram only made his first-team debut this season - in the 4-0 Capital One Cup win over Shrewsbury - but has quickly established himself as a key member of Neil Warnock's side.

He has also demonstrated his versatility by operating in roles in both defence and midfield.

A statement on the Leeds website said: "The contract is a reward for his contribution in the first team this season."

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
