Leeds sensation Sam Byram is being monitored by Everton coaching staff, with a view to a possible bid according to Cheshire today
The 19 year-old right back has proved one of the few high-points in Leeds season and has attracted the attention of a number of Premier League clubs including Manchester City and Merseyside rivals Liverpool. Everton were linked in the winter transfer window and MyEvertonNews.com have run this story before, so there may be legs in it.
In fact, it is Everton scouts who have been most obvious around Elland Road. The Toffees are looking to strengthen defensively and feel the youngster would fall within their price range. Only uncertainty about the future of David Moyes at the club appears to have scuppered an approach.
Byram has played 44 times for Leeds this year and can play in defence or midfield.
