Sam Byram will travel with Leeds United to Slovenia next week, amidst speculation over his immediate future.

Bryam is currently rehabilitating from a hip injury with Leeds manager Brian McDermott hoping he can regain fitness by the middle of their three-game tour in Slovenia.

The young defender has been nursing the problem since the end of last season, before he aggravated it just before he was due to travel to the Under-20 World Cup with England.

The England Under-20 right back impressed for the Whites last season and such form has attracted the likes of Crystal Palace, who have been linked with a £3m move for the defender according to the Daily Mail.

But McDermott quashed suggestions of Bryam being sold for such a price, asking "which boot" they were asking for?

In other injury news El-Hadji Diouf is carrying a slight knock and might also miss Saturday’s friendly game against Farsley with new signings Matt Smith, Luke Murphy and Noel Hunt are all expected to be used in Leeds’ first summer friendly game.
