Leeds United: Interest in Daniel James reignited for January - Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United could have a big January transfer window ahead of them, and reports are suggesting they are set to reignite their interest in Manchester United winger Daniel James.

Daniel James transfer update

Manchester United managed to swoop in for the Welshman during the summer of 2019, when Leeds had looked nailed on to sign him in January of that year.

Bielsa’s side have maintained an interest in the attacker, most recently in the summer transfer window. However, they were unable to acquire him for the second time. According to The Telegraph, Director of Football Victor Orta could make another attempt to sign James from Manchester United during the next January transfer window.

Would this be a good signing for Leeds?

James made a decent start to his life as a Manchester United and Premier League player last season as he managed three Premier League goals in his first four games (Transfermarkt). The fact that Orta has failed numerous times to sign him and keeps coming back is a sign of his potential, despite his form dipping since that hot start.

He hasn’t scored in the top flight since gameweek 20 last term however, and he hasn’t managed to provide any goal contributions in the division after adding six assists to his tally (Transfermarkt).
This season, he has only made four starts in all competitions, and has only played six times in total, but pundit Danny Mills has gushed in the past about his ‘frightening potential’.
