Top five: Championship starlets (3)

4. Sam Byram

Sam Byram announced his arrival on the scene at Leeds, making the step-up from youth team to the first-team last season.

After impressing in pre-season, he was handed the number 25 shirt for the 2012/13 season, and once given his chance, he hasn't looked back.

Now a regular in Brian McDermott's side, Byram was called into the Under-20s World Cup side, however he had to withdraw with a hip injury sustained at the end of his season with Leeds. 

He is yet to feature this season, still recovering from his hip injury, but if he rediscovers his form from last season, he is sure to go from strength to strength.

It's not difficult to see why Manchester City were linked with a £10m move for him back in April. He could be the next big thing, a promising sign for England fans.
