Norwich City have signed right-back Sam Byram from Premier League rivals West Ham United.

The fee hasn't officially been disclosed, but it's been reported the Canaries have paid the Hammers £750,000 to bring the 25-year-old to Carrow Road.

Byram started his career at Leeds United, and his performances attracted interest from several Premier League clubs.

He eventually decided to join West Ham, but injuries have stalled his progress in recent years.

He spent last season on loan at Championship club Nottingham Forest, before a knee injury interrupted his season.

Byram has agreed a four-year deal at Norwich and will provide competition for Max Aarons.

He becomes the Canaries' fourth new arrival of the summer.

“When I heard Norwich were interested, I was really interested [because of] how the manager [Daniel Farke] had the team playing last year," Byram said.

“First and foremost, the football side of things [convinced me to sign]. I watched a lot of them last season with the fluid football and passing style, it’s obviously very attractive.

“Stuart [Webber] had explained where the club had come from when he joined two years ago and his plans going forward and how they’re really trying to develop things. He sold the club to me.”

Meanwhile, Stevenage have re-signed midfielder Dean Parrett from Gillingham.
