Norwich City target Sam Byram is set to leave Leeds this month after Leeds chairman Massimo Cellino told The Mirror that he would be sold this month.

Cellino has announced that Byram is for sale due to the fact that he wants to leave the club and his contract expires in the summer. With Byram refusing to sign a new contract, Leeds have been forced into selling the player.

It is better to lose him now. It is less painful for the club.
