Sheffield Wednesday reportedly miss out as Reece James joins Huddersfield

Sheffield Wednesday were reportedly interested in signing Manchester United left back Reece James, but he's joined Huddersfield.

Huddersfield Town have confirmed the arrival of Manchester United left back Reece James on their official site, who was a target for Sheffield Wednesday according to the Daily Mail.

James, 21, is a former Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End youth product, and he caught the eye of Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal during United's pre-season preparations last summer.

The left back, brother of Leicester City midfielder Matty James, has featured just once for United this season though, and that came in the embarrassing 4-0 loss to MK Dons in the Capital One Cup.

Since then, James has enjoyed a loan spell with Rotherham United earlier this season, playing eight games for the Millers after joining in November.

Now, James has made another loan move away, with Huddersfield Town confirming on their official site that he has joined the club.

Stuart Gray's Sheffield Wednesday already have one United reserve on loan in Will Keane, and appeared to be keen on adding a second in James, according to the Daily Mail - but have missed out with James' move to rivals Huddersfield Town.

With not long to go until the loan deadline, it remains to be seen whether Wednesday push to make another signing after seemingly missing out on James.
