Leeds United are interested in signing Manchester United attacker Daniel James on loan in January, according to The Daily Telegraph.

The Wales international has featured just six times in all competitions this season. Since moving to United from Swansea City during the summer of 2019, James has shown glimpses of brilliance though he still has flaws in his game.

James made a strong start to his career at Old Trafford. However, the emergence of Mason Greenwood saw his playing time significantly reduced.

James did look rejuvenated whilst on international duty for Wales last month, but the addition of Edinson Cavani to the United first-team means that his playing time has suffered.

Both player and club could benefit from sending James on loan this winter. By going out on loan, he will be able to continue his development as well as gain more experience at the highest level.

Cavani is unlikely to stay at United beyond his two-year deal, as he is already 33-years-old. United could definitely look at re-integrating James into the first-team in the future should he show good progress while away from Old Trafford.

The report added that United are set to complete a pre-agreement deal with Atalanta’s Amad Diallo next month. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to make a decision on James’ immediate future once Diallo is on board.
