Swansea City manager Graham Potter has suggested that contract talks between the club and Daniel James are not progressing well, according to reports from TEAMtalk.
The Welsh winger was linked heavily with a move to Leeds United in January, but despite undergoing a medical and spending the entirety of deadline day at Elland Road, the deal fell through in the final few minutes.
Reports recently surfaced that the Whites tried to sign him on loan on deadline day, but the two clubs were unable to reach an agreement and the deal fell through.
James starred in Swansea’s 4-1 thumping over Brentford in the FA Cup at the weekend, where he launched a rapid counter-attack to fire Graham Potter’s men in front.
But when asked if Swansea want to keep James with his contract expiring next year, Swansea boss Potter said: “The answer is yes but it’s not as simple as that.
“All parties have to agree. It’s a process. You have to make sure everybody’s happy.”
The Welsh club currently sit 13th in the Sky Bet Championship table, nine points off the play-off positions after winning only two of their last of their last six league games.
Leeds have recently slipped out of the automatic promotion places, but have a game in hand on Sheffield United who leapfrogged the Whites at the weekend.
This is promising news for Leeds United who spent the whole of the January transfer window trying to sign Dan James.
The Whites are in need of another playmaker after some stuttering form, and it seems almost inevitable that they will go back in for him in the summer.
His performance against Brentford was sensational at the weekend, and he displayed so much pace which Leeds could really do with in their side.
