Swansea City winger will face Leeds this week.
Dan James made his return for Swansea City this weekend after his proposed move to Leeds broke down on transfer deadline day.
The Telegraph reported how James had a medical at Leeds ahead of a planned move totalling £10 million, before Swansea decided they did not want to sell.
Swansea face Leeds this week and James' teammate George Byers has backed the winger to cope at Elland Road.
Byers told Dai Sport that he believes James has the talent and temperament to handle the occasion.
He said: "They will probably do everything they can to get in his head, but he’s a strong lad and I’m sure he’ll deal with it.
"You get a bit of grief in every game you go into. It doesn’t matter if it’s Leeds or whoever.
"He gives us something different because he’s so fast. He’s different gravy.
"He has been excellent since he came back in. It’s been a tough time for him, but I thought he did really well for the team. He could have had a couple of goals."
Swansea beat Millwall 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium at the weekend.
James had three shots at goal, all of which missed the target.
Leeds full back Luke Ayling has been out of form and he will need to raise his game to cope with James in Wednesday's encounter.
