Nottingham Forest remain hopeful of signing Sam Byram despite missing out on him during the transfer window.
According to The Nottingham Post, Nottingham Forest will still try to sign Byram on loan after failing to strike an arrangement with West Ham United over a permanent move to The City Ground.
West Ham see the 24-year-old as surplus to requirements after signing Ryan Fredericks to rival Pablo Zabaleta at right-back and they will sanction his exit.
The deal is likely to be an initial loan move with a view to making Byram’s stay at Nottingham Forest permanent when the transfer window re-opens in January.
Nottingham Forest have been in the market for a new right-back to provide competition for places with Tendayi Darikwa.
Byram has been with West Ham since January 2016 after joining from Leeds United but he has only played 36 games in all competitions for the Hammers.
Byram is still relatively young at 24 and needs a move to the Championship to reignite his stalling career.
The attack-minded right-back was sensational at Leeds and if he rediscovers that form, Forest would have a top player on their books.
This loan arrangement could work for them as well because if Byram fails to live up to expectations, there would be no obligation to make his deal permanent.
