Leeds United overtook Sheffield United in the race for automatic promotion with a 2-0 win at Preston North End last night.
A defeat for the Blades at Birmingham City tonight would see the automatic promotion race be in Leeds’ hands.
It has been a scintillating maiden season in English football for boss Marcelo Bielsa.
Even if his team doesn’t secure a place in the top-two, you certainly wouldn’t back against the Whites winning the play-offs.
Back in January, Bielsa tried to land Dan James from Swansea in order to compliment his current crop.
The deal collapsed at the eleventh hour, as confirmed via the BBC, with the Swans pulling the plug on the £8.5 million deal.
If Leeds secure a place in the Premier League there is every possibility they might return to try and land James.
The Welsh sensation has been in fine form of late, netting his fifth of the season against Stoke City last night.
Following his goal in last night’s contest, Leeds fans were intrigued that the 21-year-old was still in decent form.
Looking at some of the posts on Twitter it seems that some of the Whites faithful are still desperately keen to land the youngster this summer.
We looked at the best tweets from Leeds fans regarding the Swansea maestro.

Can't help but watch Jack Harrison and think how much better Leeds would be if they had got Daniel James through the door in January! #LUFC

Wish we got that Daniel James deal over the line, turning out to be a right player

Daniel James is going to a top six Prem team* isn't he..?

Don't think we'll get him in summer. Think others will come knocking.

And Harrison didn't have a particularly good game last night btw. Don't mistake that for me "trying to destroy" him?But I think there's a reason why we were trying to sign Daniel James.
