Two goals and a run of impressive displays ensured the Whites went four games unbeaten at the beginning of March as the 19-year-old enhanced his ever-growing reputation at full-back.

Having only made his first-team debut under previous manager Neil Warnock in a Capital One Cup clash at the beginning of this season, Byram spoke conservatively about his accolade.

"Overall, I'm happy with my form this season," the defender admitted. "I've made a few mistakes but learnt and got better from them. I am looking to improve."

Leeds manager Brian McDermott had nothing but praise for Byram's displays despite having only worked with him for a few weeks.

"First and foremost he is a really good person who wants to learn and get better," the former Reading manager confirmed.

"Sam is not one to sit back on his laurels - he has got potential, he is keen to learn and I'm sure he'll go on to fulfil it."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
