West Ham United defender Sam Byram is ‘in limbo’ as it is unclear whether he will be leaving the London Stadium before the transfer window closes on Thursday, according to The London Evening Standard.

The Hammers have embarked on an ambitious summer in the transfer market, with one of the new faces to arrive Ryan Fredericks.

With Pablo Zabaleta still on West Ham’s books, Byram is unlikely to get much game-time with the Irons if he stays with the club.

Speculation in the press has linked with right-back with a move to Nottingham Forest, with Reds manager Aitor Karanka even admitting he is interested in the Hammers man.

However, the latest report suggests that the West Ham defender is unsure of where he will play his football in 2018-19, with nothing concrete sorted out and the window closing in just over 24 hours.

Byram arrived at the Hammers with a stellar reputation from Leeds United but has failed to live up to his potential in the Premier League.

West Ham start their Premier League campaign at the weekend against Liverpool, but the right-back will surely play no part in the game – whether he is still at the club remains to be seen.
