Sam Byram has trained with Leeds today, reports the Yorkshire Evening Post. 

There was speculation that the young right back had agreed terms with Everton, after he held talks with them.

The Merseyside club had a bid of £3.7m accepted for the Leeds star, who is out of contract this summer.

Leeds boss Steve Evans said that Byram had asked to be leaved out of Leeds squad for their game at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The 22 year old has undergone a medical at Everton and is said to have discussed personal terms with The Toffees.

However, neither club has confirmed a deal yet which explains why Byram trained at Thorp Arch on Monday.

Byram has made 143 appearances for Leeds but is expected to depart for Everton imminently.

Premier League side West Ham were also interested in the youngster but it was Everton who met Massimo Cellino’s valuation of the right back.

Leeds defeat at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday means that their play off hopes are practically over and may lead to increased speculation about the futures of Lewis Cook and Alex Mowatt, who have also been linked with departures from Elland Road.
