Sam has been at Easter Road since the age of 12 and made his first team debut for Hibs as a substitute against Rangers in January 2012.

After being selected for the Scotland under-19 side in August, he signed a three-year contract extension and was then loaned out to Cowdenbeath in January 2013, but after just two appearances a knee injury ended his season prematurely. Recovering well from his injury, he became a regular in the Hibs side during the 2013/14 season, was named SPFL young player of the month for February, and made his Scotland under-21 debut in a March friendly match against Hungary.

After the Edinburgh side's relegation to the Championship, Sam continued to be a first team regular as they reached but ultimately fell short in the playoffs. After just a handful of games in the first half of the 2015/16 season, Sam was sent out on loan to Livingston in January 2016 for the remainder of the season.

The loan spells continued with a season long spell at Dumbarton agreed on deadline day in August 2016, and a year later Ray McKinnon brought him to Tannadice for another year-long deal to try and help United gain promotion at the second time of asking.

Sam quickly became a prominent member of the midfield, and his move was made permanent in January 2018, as he agreed to a two and a half year contract with United. He missed just three matches during the course of the season, with United just falling short on promotion to the Premiership.
