Everton are are believed to be in advanced talks over the transfer of Leeds United right back, Sam Byram.
Reports this evening claim that the Merseyside club have had a bid of around £4million accepted by Leeds and personal talks are progressing well.
Byram, 22, has played 143 times for the Yorkshire club, scoring 10 goals. Byram would be an understudy to Seamus Coleman initially, but Everton will be hoping they can develop the youngster in the same way they have with John Stones, who they signed from fellow Yorkshire club, Barnsley. Stones has since gone on to be one of the hottest properties in world football and Everton will be looking for the same kind of develop in the same manner.
Byrams current contract expires in 2017, but has so far refused to extend it, putting pressure on Leeds to cash in.
