According to the Mirror today, Norwich are keen on a swap deal for Leeds United’s Sam Byram which would see Northern Ireland international Kyle Lafferty head to Elland Road.

Whites boss Steve Evans has previously stated his interest in the 28 year-old striker to bolster his attacking options, while Norwich are among many clubs who are fans of Byram and his potential.

Lafferty has fallen out of favour at Carrow Road this season and has so far made just two appearances for the Canaries, leading to much speculation about his future in East Anglia.

A towering forward standing at 6’4″, Lafferty spoke about the interest from the Whites and said; “I’m overwhelmed at the interest from Leeds as I understand how passionate the club and their fans are.”

Byram on the other hand is firmly in first team contention at Elland Road, making 21 appearances, and is seen as one of their brightest prospects.

Naturally a right-back but adept at filling in on the wing, Byram has already played in over 125 for the Whites despite being just 22 years old – a sign of the faith that managers have in the youngsters potential.
