The West Ham United fans here in the Transfer Tavern could soon be rejoicing over a new recruit if an article in Shoot is found to be accurate.
The article, which has been found by two men chucking their money into the Tavern’s fruit machine, suggests that the Hammers have won the race to sign Leeds United youngster Sam Byram ahead of Everton and Newcastle United.
It has been highly documented that Leeds would be willing to sell Byram with the player seemingly reluctant to put pen-to-paper on a new deal, and the latest reports suggest a deal could be close.
One Hammers fans casually enjoying the Tavern’s happy hour claims that Byram will have to work hard at his game in order to be a success in the top flight with concerns that he ‘goes missing’ in way too many games in the Sky Bet Championship.
West Ham fans… What do you know about the Leeds man? Would you welcome him to your club?
