Southampton are eyeing a cut-price move for Leeds full-back Sam Byram if Calum Chambers leaves the club this summer.

Mauricio Pochettino hopes to keep hold of the talented defender in spite of interest from Manchester United and Arsenal, but is keeping tabs on England Under-20 international Byram’s situation at the Championship club.

Nathaniel Clyne would likely become first choice at St Mary’s if Chambers is sold, but the Saints are keen on Byram’s versatility and encouraged by reports that have suggested his character would fit in well with Pochettino’s squad.
