Leeds United target Dan James is reportedly closing in on a £15million move to Manchester United.
The 21-year-old is a player that Leeds have been chasing for what seems an eternity, after his January deadline day move fell through in the dying embers of the transfer window.
The Welshman, since his failed move to Elland Road, has gone from strength to strength under Graham Potter for Swansea City, scoring five goals and producing eight assists for the South Wales club.
But after a string of eye-catching displays for the Championship side, Sky Sports News claims that Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men are close to signing James in a deal worth around £15million.
This is likely to come as a massive kick in the teeth for Leeds fans – not only is James a player that they have tracked for months, but Manchester United are perhaps their most fiercest rivals.
Here, we take a look at Leeds fans’ reactions to this latest transfer news…
Gonna be hard to forgive our January incompetence on DJ and other lack of signings (e.g. Saiz replacement) if we don't go up. Lets hope we do

Painful as it is, I think we've gotta give Victor Orta credit for jumping on this one six months before anyone else. Not sure we could have done much more to get him.
Hard to see him go there of all places though, especially as we'd have finished top two if he'd come…

You'd have thought a gentleman's agreement would be in place on the basis of promotion

I would love for him to say no to Man U and sign for us…. Would be lovely to get one back over United after the whole Cantona transfer. #alaw
