'90 minutes': Jesse Marsch says £25m Leeds star will be playing for their under-21's tomorrow

Dan James will play for Leeds United’s under-21’s tomorrow, Jesse Marsch has revealed in today’s press conference.

As reported by Leeds Live, Marsch was giving an update on his squad ahead of the visit of Wolves on Saturday afternoon.

One player that won’t be involved is winger Dan James, who was sent off after 24 minutes against Chelsea at the end of last season and is still suspended for one more game.

Marsch, however, provided an update on James that’s sure to earn the respect of some Leeds fans.

The American manager, when asked about the 24-year-old said: “Dan James (is) suspended (for) one more match. (He’ll play) ninety minutes tomorrow with the under-21’s at his request.”

James’ commitment to playing football and improving his fitness, is exactly the sort of attitude Marsch will be looking for from his squad.

The Welsh winger, who was signed for £25m from Manchester United, has added first team competition this season.

Although Raphinha has left Elland Road, Luis Sinisterra and Brenden Aaronson have given Marsch additional attacking options.

The American manager will unfortunately be without Sinisterra on Saturday, but the winger is looking ‘very good’ in training.

Jack Harrison also remains at the club and can play on either wing, and fresh from signing a new contract this week, Crysencio Summerville will be hoping for more first team opportunities.

James supporting the club’s young stars as they kick off their under-21 campaign is a good sign to see, and he’ll be hoping to put in a performance that convinced Marsch that he needs to return straight to first-team action.
