West Bromwich Albion remain on the trail of Leeds United right-back Sam Byram after watching the talent youngster for a second time.

Baggies manager Steve Clarke took in Byram’s highly-impressive display aayt Leicester City, following up an earlier trip to monitor the 19-year-old during Leeds’ 2-2 draw at Wolves last month.

Clarke and his assistant, Keith Downing, were both in the crowd at Molineux as Byram, struggled through a tight Championship clash on February 9 but his goalscoring appearance at Leicester is more likely to encourage further interest from the Premier League side.

Byram opened the scoring in a 1-1 draw on Tuesday, striking in the 54th minute to claim his third goal of the season, and manager Neil Warnock admitted afterwards that he had found a “new lease of life” after a slight dip in form around the time of the United’s draw at Wolves.

Leeds recently extended Byram’s contract until 2016 but he has already caught the eye of David Moyes’ Everton and could now tempt a summer bid from West Brom.
