Daniel James Completes Manchester United Transfer To Leeds On Deadline Day
Daniel James has completed a £25million move to Leeds from Manchester United on deadline day.
James, 23, was earmarked for a first-team role this season but reconsidered his future following last week's shock return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford - Leeds have held a long-standing interest in the player.
The MEN revealed James passed his medical and agreed personal terms at Elland Road this (Tuesday) morning and the transfer has now been made official.
Leeds have broken their club record for the Welshman and they've paid £25million upfront, with some add-ons.
The Yorkshire side infamously almost signed James on deadline day in January 2019 before United nabbed the Welshman for £15m from Swansea that summer and Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is a long-term admirer of the pacey forward and the player.
James made his final United appearance in the weekend win over Wolves. He leaves the club having scored nine goals and notched nine assists in 74 appearances.
