According to ExWHUemployee, Sam Byram is set for a £750,000 switch to Norwich City.

The 25-year-old joined the Hammers from Leeds United in January 2016, for around £3.7 million, according to the Independent.

He has struggled to establish himself at the London Stadium, however.

Byram has made just 17 Premier League starts for West Ham, and he spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest.

Manuel Pellegrini has strong options in the right-back department, with Ryan Fredericks, Pablo Zabaleta and Ben Johnson all currently ahead of Byram in the pecking order.

So the 25-year-old will surely be keen to leave the Hammers in order to gain more regular first-team action.

 

And ExWHUemployee claims that the right-back is on his way to Norwich City:

Bryam is out of contract with West Ham next summer, hence the apparent low fee.

His £25,000 per week wages will be taken of the Hammers’ wage-bill, however, so that will be pleasing for Pellegrini.

The former Leeds man seemed to have the talent to go on and become a real star for West Ham.

Unfortunately for him, however, he never really lived up to that potential in east London.
