Leeds United supporters here in the Transfer Tavern are set to be rushing to the bar to drown their sorrows later on this evening after some pretty bad news regarding one of their current crop of talent.
One of our regular Leeds supporting punters is waiting to be served at the bar has been alerted to a tweet from BBC Sport’s Northern football correspondent,which claims that Everton have had a bid accepted for Whites star Sam Byram.
The 22-year-old had been playing in a more advanced role during this campaign and has netted three goals towards the Leeds United cause, but it remains to be seen where Toffees boss Roberto Martinez will see him slot into his side.
One Everton fan is tucking into a Chicken Madras from the Tavern’s award-winning curry and a pint menu when he declares his delight at the signing, stating that it is great to see the club securing the country’s top talent ahead of their best years.
Leeds and Everton fans… We want your thoughts on Sam Byram! Is he ready for the Premier League?
