Daniel James has completed his move to Leeds from Manchester United on transfer deadline day.
The Wales international was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first signing as United boss, but a decision has been made to move the player on because there’s more than enough attacking options in the squad following the news Cristiano Ronaldo is coming home.
James, 23, started two of United’s first three games of the season — against Leeds on the opening day of the season and versus Wolves on Sunday. Little did we know that was going to be his final appearance for the club.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano was first with the news this morning, and his updates up until this point has been spot on. He claims Everton never showed an interest in hijacking the move from Leeds, despite reports elsewhere in the media.

Leeds have always been linked with a move for James – even before his switch to Old Trafford from Swansea City – but now it is set in stone, with the winger signing a five year contract, as per Leeds’ official website.
We wish James all the best!
