New Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler has revealed that the club have no intentions of letting their star defender Sam Byram leave Elland Road this summer, according to talkSPORT.
Byram was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League last week, with Swansea City and Everton reportedly showing interest in the 21-year-old.
However, Rosler, who took over at Leeds this summer, has ruled out the right-back making a move away. “I’ve heard a lot of talk about Sam Byram but we’ve only received one enquiry, we haven’t even had an official bid,” he said in a recent interview with talkSPORT.
“Sam is as good as gold. He works extremely hard, as does the whole squad. He’s playing very well and has a contract with us. Obviously he’s a talented young English player, so people are going to be sniffing around him, but Mr Cellino has told me we don’t need to sell. There are no plans whatsoever to sell one of our young talented players.”
Nonetheless, a potential bid for the Leeds man did seem extremely unlikely, considering the Yorkshire club’s £8m asking price.
