Leeds United are considering a move for Swansea City winger Daniel James, report the Yorkshire Evening Post.

James would cost Leeds around £3 million and help the Whites take the pressure off attackers Pablo Hernandez and Jack Clarke.

The Swansea talent made his Wales debut late last year and national team boss Ryan Giggs raved about his talent.

 

Giggs outlined what makes James such a good player, which also highlights why Leeds are interested and what he can bring to the team.

The Wales boss was quoted by Swansea's official website: "He is on fire at the moment

"He is someone who has got genuine speed and someone who is exciting.

“He can start a game or potentially come on and make an impact.

“You always want players who are playing regularly and he is playing really well.

“If you have front players especially who are feeling confident, that’s always a good thing.”

Giggs' comments about James' form came after a run of games which saw the winger provide three assists in three games.

James has been in and out of the Swansea side since, and at 21 he has only shown a glimpse of what he can do.

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa could help him reach a different level.
