Leeds plotting double raid for Swansea’s Dan James and Jefferson Montero

Leeds plotting double raid for Swansea’s Dan James and Jefferson Montero

Leeds United could look to take two men from one of their Championship rivals as they bolster their own promotion bid in January.

According to The Sun (Sunday 13 January 2019, page 59), via HITC Sport, the Whites are thought to be considering a double raid on Swansea City.

It is understood that the Elland Road outfit are plotting to launch a £2.5million bid for Dan James, whilst they consider a loan deal for Jefferson Montero.


James has been impressing for the Swans in their rather disappointing year and the 21-year-old has shown signs of promise with his performances for the Welsh outfit.

Montero, who had two loan spells away from the club last season, has featured sparingly for Graham Potter’s side and could be tempted to team up with the Championship leaders this winter.

The Verdict:

Leeds are understood to be in the market for a new wide man, however, it appears Bielsa could look to add two to his squad.

James has been impressive with Swansea and has registered three assists in his 16 appearances so far, whilst Montero would offer some experience to the team.

However, it remains to be seen if the two Championship outfits can strike a deal between them in January.
