Current Club: Leeds United
Date of Birth: 16/09/1993 (Thurrock)

Right-back Sam Byram became the fourth addition to Daniel Farke’s Norwich City squad in the summer of 2019, joining from fellow Premier League side West Ham United on 16th July 2019 for £750,000. He signed a four year deal.

Byram said: “I’m delighted. It’s all happened quite fast and it’s been a quick turnaround. There’s been a lot of travelling to get out here to Germany but I’m just pleased I’m here now. “I heard about the interest a week or two ago. Obviously, I wasn’t in the plans for West Ham going forward and I needed a new challenge to go out and push on after last season. “When I heard Norwich were interested, I was really interested [because of] how the manager [Daniel Farke] had the team playing last year."

Byram began his career with Leeds United and played 143 times over four seasons at the Elland Road club. He made his first team debut in a 4–0 victory over Shrewsbury Town on 11 August 2012 in the League Cup. In 2012/13 Byram won the Player of the Year Award, Young Player of the Year Award, Players Player of the Year Award and also the Supporters Club Player of the Year Award

He moved to east London in January 2016. He played 36 times during three years with the Hammers and underwent knee surgery at the start of 2018/19, leading to eight months on the sidelines. He finished the 2018/19 season on loan at Notts Forest but made just six appearances.

Byram made his Norwich debut as a late substitute in the 3-1 Premier League win over Newcastle on 17th August 2019. He made his first start in the 1-0 defeat to Crawley in the Carabao Cup (League Cup) on 27th August 2019. He made a total of 19 appearances during 2019/20 before injury curtailed his season.

He made 18 appearances in 2021/22 as Norwich finished bottom of the Premier League.

Sam scored his first goal for Norwich City in the 1-1 draw with West Brom on 17 September 2022.

On 5th May 2023 Norwich announced that Byram would be leaving at the end of the 2022/23 season. He had played 54 games for City.

On 15th July 2023 it was reported that Byram was on trial with Leeds with the possibility of linking with his former Norwich boss Daniel Farke, now in charge at Leeds. He signed a one year deal with Leeds on 5th August 2023.
