​Martinez confirms Everton discussions for Leeds Byram

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has confirmed the Merseysiders have made an approach for Championship Leeds United defender Sam Byram.

Reports suggest the clubs are already in talks about the 22-year-old moving to Goodison Park, although Martinez has suggested there is still some work to do before a transfer can take place.

"There has been an approach. There is nothing else to comment on. You have to be careful," Martinez said. "From there to conclusive news is a long gap."
