Leeds United have confirmed the signing of Wales winger, Daniel James.

James joins Leeds from Manchester United on a five-year deal.

‘The Whites’ stated that the 23-year-old was close to joining the side during the 2018/19 Championship season and has continued to impress through his hard-working nature and lightning pace.

During his stay at the ‘Red Devils’, he managed to find the back of the net on nine occasions in 74 appearances.

“For me and my football career this is completely the right decision,” James told Sky Sports News.

“I had an unbelievable time at Manchester United. I made great friends, the staff and fans were amazing to me. It is my time to move on career wise. I am just looking forward to it.

“I am a different player. I had maybe only played half a season the last time I nearly signed here. I have games under my belt at the top level and feel I can add something here.”

Meanwhile, Victor Orta, Director of Football at Leeds, added that: “I have to say a huge thank you to my team firstly – the football department have 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!”
