Sam Byram: On the verge of a return to first-team action

Leeds defender Sam Byram's pending return to first-team action will equate to a major new signing, according to manager Brian McDermott.

Byram, sidelined since April with a hip injury, played his first full 90 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Sunderland at Thorp Arch this week.

McDermott refused to be drawn on when Byram is likely to return to senior action, but said the teenage left-back was "getting close".

"Sam played 90 minutes on Monday and played well," McDermott told the club's official website.

"We haven't put timeframes on his return yet, but he must be getting close, which is great news.

"When you talk about transfer deadline days, how much would it have cost to buy Sam Byram?

"He is one of ours and he is coming back into our squad."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
