The arrival of right-back Sam Byram from West Ham has been welcomed as a potential bargain signing by Norwich City supporters.










The 25-year-old former Leeds defender has joined for a reported initial fee of £750,000 and signed a four-year deal after injuries saw his time with West Ham drift of course.

Byram joined Nottingham Forest on loan at the start of last season but suffered a serious knee injury after three matches and didn't return until March after surgery, making five appearances at the end of the campaign.

After a very strong start to his career with Leeds a move to West Ham for around £4m arrived in January 2016 but injury issues restricted him to 36 appearances for the Hammers.

IN PROFILE: Norwich City signing Sam Byram

He arrives as the fourth signing of the summer and takes the vacant squad number three, previously occupied by left-back James Husband, who is expected to leave before the new season after a loan at Fleetwood.

It is at right full-back where Byram will compete with Max Aarons primarily though, with the England U19 international a star player for Daniel Farke last season but with the exits of Ivo Pinto and Felix Passlack having left City without proper cover.
