Leeds United are interested in Swansea City winger Daniel James, according to Football Insider.

The Whites’ boss, Marcelo Bielsa, is keen on bolstering his sides’ attacking options with a couple of signings in the January transfer window.

James, who is 21 years-old, has impressed in the Championship with Swansea City this season and has proven to be a real handful for defences.

He was born in Yorkshire and started his career at Hull City. He then made the switch to Swansea City in 2014 and became a key player for the Swans’ youth sides.

James joined Shrewsbury Town in June 2017 on a season-long loan but returned to the Liberty Stadium after just two months after failing to get into their match day squad.

The tricky winger then made his Swansea first-team debut in an 8-1 FA Cup victory in February 2018 and chipped in with a goal. Since the Swans’ relegation to the Championship in the last campaign, James has become a regular under Graham Potter.

Despite being born in England, James qualifies to play for Wales through his father. He has represented them at all youth levels and received his first senior call-up for their World Cup qualifying game against Serbia earlier this year.

Swansea rate James very highly and will be hoping they can hold onto him this January amid interest from Leeds. It has been refreshing for their fans to see youngsters like James given their chance this season along with the likes of Oliver McBurnie, Matt Grimes, Jay Fulton and Conor Roberts.
