Norwich City are interested in signing Leeds United star Sam Byram – and are considering offering Northern Ireland international Kyle Lafferty as a makeweight in the deal, reports The Mirror.
Whites boss Steve Evans has been monitoring Lafferty for some time and is understood to have made a move for the 28-year-old once the January transfer window open.
But Norwich have joined the race for the much sought-after Byram and are considering offering Lafferty in a part-exchange deal in the hope that Leeds would do business with them.
Byram, 22, is out of contract in the summer at Elland Road and is refusing to sign fresh terms with the West Yorkshire outfit, which has alerted Premier League clubs in the likes of Liverpool and West Ham United.
The right-back, who can also operate as a winger, came through the youth system at Leeds and has gone on to score nine times in 127 appearances.
As it stands, if he saw out his contract at Elland Road, then Leeds would be due a seven-figure fee in compensation. The Whites are said to rate Byram at around £5m.
Lafferty has made just two appearances for Norwich this season and is rumoured to be on his way to Leeds in a six-month loan deal.
