It was announced early this morning that West Ham United have agreed a deal with Premier League newcomers Norwich City that sees defender Sam Byram move to Carrow Road on a permanent basis for £750,000 on a four-year contract. 

Byram was signed for the Hammers by Slaven Bilic from Sky Bet Championship side Leeds United in January 2016 and was named as a substitute in his first game against Manchester City, who were coincidently then managed by current West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini.

He was involved early on in that game as he was brought on as a substitute for the injured Carl Jenkinson in the thirteenth minute and went on to have an impressive debut. 

Although the 25-year-old made 36 first-team appearances, he was used sparingly during his three-and-a-half year spell at the club due to injuries and loan spells but he was involved in some key moments in that time. These included setting up Cheikhou Kouyaté for the first goal at the new stadium against NK Dom×ale of Slovenia in their UEFA Europa League third qualifying round match and playing in their first top-flight fixture at the new venue against AFC Bournemouth.

Byram made his last appearance for the East Londoners when he was introduced as a second-half substitute during last week's 3-2 pre-season win over SCR Altach in Austria.

The defender might not have to wait long for a return to his boyhood club however, as the Canaries make the trip to the East End on 31 August.
