A LEFT-BACK or left wing-back who prides himself on his athleticism, Sam McCallum joined the R’s with a fair amount of Championship experience already under his belt at the age of just 20.
Born in Canterbury, McCallum turned out for local side Herne Bay after coming through Jamie Vardy’s V9 Academy.
His big break then arrived thanks to a move to Coventry City in August 2018.
After making his senior debut for the Sky Blues in an EFL Trophy encounter versus Cheltenham Town later that year, a further 34 appearances over the next 18 or so months persuaded Norwich City into paying a reported fee of almost £4million for McCallum.
Norwich loaned him straight back to Coventry and, after making a further eight appearances in their League One promotion campaign of 2019/20, a further 42 followed in 2020/21 as the Sky Blues completed their first season back in the Sky Bet Championship.
A bright future lies ahead of the 20-year-old and he will be hoping to further his development at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
