Transfer Deadline: Man United’s Winger Joins EPL Rival










On Tuesday, the 23-year-old moved from Old Trafford to Leeds for a fee of £25 million. 

He had a medical on Tuesday before joining the rest of the Wales group at their training camp in Finland in preparation for the World Cup qualifying matches. 

The Welsh winger has signed a five-year deal with the West Yorkshire club. 

“For me, it’s been a bit of a whirlwind, a crazy moment. But I’m here now, and I’m glad for the club’s interest in me, and for them still believing in me two and a half years later,” James told Sky Sports.

“I’m happy to be here and I can’t wait to play in front of these fans.

“There’s always been an interest since I nearly signed from Swansea.

“I think there wasn’t much going on in the last day or two, it happened very quickly, I’ve got my head around it and this is where I want to be moving forward.

“I think for me and my football career, it was completely the right decision,’ he went on.

“Don’t get me wrong, I had an unbelievable time, made great friends and the staff and fans were amazing to me.

“For me, it’s my time to move career-wise and move forward so I’m looking forward to it.”

On James’ arrival, Leeds director of football Victor Orta said: “I have to say a huge thank you to my team firstly – the football department has been monitoring Daniel for a number of years and every member of my team has worked hard to get this deal over the line.

“It is no secret that Daniel is a player we have been keen to acquire for a number of years and today we achieved our goal.

“As a player, we feel Daniel is an excellent fit for a Marcelo Bielsa team, he is quick, direct, and works hard – we look forward to him joining up with the squad, finally!”
