Highly-rated defender Sam Byram commits his future to Leeds United, signing a new contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2016.

Leeds United youngster Sam Byram has signed a new contract extension keeping him at the club until June 2016.

The 19-year-old has been the only ever-present in Neil Warnock's squad since making his debut on the opening day.

The highly-rated defender had been the subject of transfer speculation, with Norwich City, Everton and Fulham all reportedly interested in signing him during the window.

However, Byram has put an end to all the rumours by signing a new deal at the club.

Byram was handed his first professional deal in the summer, before making his senior debut in the Capital One Cup in August.
