Sunderland have again been linked with a move for Leeds United’s highly-rated right-back Sam Byram.

The Black Cats were one of a number of clubs considering a move for Byram last summer, only to shy away from Leeds’ hefty asking price.

But reports today have indicated that Sunderland are again contemplating a move for the 21-year-old, who is rated by Leeds in the £5million bracket.

However, it is understood that while Sunderland may well strengthen their options at full-back this summer, it is not the priority position for sporting director Lee Congerton.
