Man City plotting big-money move for Leeds youngster Byram

Manchester City will offer a total £10m to Leeds United for their teenage defender Sam Byram, the Daily Mail has reported, as Roberto Mancini looks to add more young, English talent to his squad.

Byram, 19, has impressed in his first season in the Elland Road first team, and caught Mancini’s eye during City’s 4-0 win over Leeds in the FA Cup earlier in the season. The structure of the reported deal would see City pay Leeds £6m up front for the teenager, with the rest coming in add-ons. Byram could also be allowed to return on loan to Leeds to continue his development.

Born in Essex, Byram moved to the Yorkshire area in his school days and was picked up by Leeds and brought into the club’s youth set-up. He signed a professional contract in May 2012 and was promoted to the first team by former Leeds boss Neil Warnock, having been part of a pre-season tour to the South West of England. He has made 50 appearances for the club.
