Byram, 22, has penned a four-and-a-half year deal with the Barclays Premier League club, with the transfer fee undisclosed, but reported to be around £3.7million.

The defender, also said to have been attracting interest from Everton, was a regular in the Leeds side this season and is expected to now challenge for a first-team spot in Slaven Bilic's squad.

"I'm unbelievably proud and happy to join a club as big as this," Byram told the club's official website, www.whufc.com.

"I'm just looking forward to what the future holds and hopefully I can achieve things with the team going forward."
