Nottingham Forest’s loaned in right-back Sam Byram has said that he would not turn down a return to the City Ground next season if the opportunity came around.
Nottingham Forest right-back Sam Byram is open to the possibility of returning to the club in the upcoming transfer window.
Byram joined Nottingham Forest in the summer transfer window after falling out of favour at West Ham, where he has struggled with injury problems. Now, he has one eye on next season and has said that he would be open to returning to the City Ground.
“I need to play football and, you know, if Nottingham Forest offer me football next season, I would not turn that opportunity down,” Byram told Nottinghamshire Live.
“But I need to sit down in the summer with West Ham, because I do not know what their plans are for me.
“I am hoping to keep playing here until the end of the season and then see where we go from there.”
Byram has endured a difficult season at the City Ground. He suffered a knee injury shortly after the start of the season and has only just made his return to Martin O’Neill’s Forest side. But now, he is hoping to add to his four appearances for the club to try and help finish the season strongly.
“I just want to help the team. It is not mathematically certain that we will miss the play-offs. There are five games left and 15 points to play for. I want to play as much as I can and help the team to climb up the league as high as we can.
“Nothing has been said yet about my future yet. As far as I am aware, I will head back to West Ham, speak with the manager and go from there.”
