Leeds United set to reignite transfer interest in Man Utd star


After impressing early on following his move from Swansea City last summer, the Wales international has fallen down the pecking order at United this season.

Leeds United are set to rekindle their interest in out-of-favor Manchester United winger Daniel James in the January transfer window, according to The Telegraph.

The 22-year-old Wales international, who joined the Red Devils in a £15m move from Championship outfit Swansea City last summer, has failed to nail down a permanent spot in United’s starting XI. He has started only four games for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s in all competitions this season, scoring 1 goal in the process.

However, despite not affording the Welshman much game time, the Red Devils would only let him leave in January after they get the work permit for Amad Diallo. The 18-year-old winger signed for United this summer but would join his new teammates once his work permit is ratified.

The teenager’s likely arrival at Old Trafford would surely mean the end of road for James who showed much promise during his early days in Manchester. James put in a few decent performances at the start of his United career last season but has since then become a peripheral figure at the club.

Many expected the 22-year-old to bid farewell to United over the summer, but James ended up staying put after the Red Devils saw repeated bids for Jadon Sancho rejected by Borussia Dortmund. But it seems now that even without the arrival of Sancho, who plays in the same position as James, the former Swansea star will be bidding farewell to his Old Trafford teammates next month.
