Leeds United fans react to news that Daniel James is back on their radar

Leeds United are reportedly looking into a potential deal to sign Daniel James from Manchester United, should the Welshman fall completely out of favour at Old Trafford. 

The Red Devils are still on the hunt for Jadon Sancho this summer with Ivan Perisic said to be another potential target – leaving James on the fringes.

As reported by the Daily Star, Leeds would be looking at a season-long loan deal for the wideman with a potential to buy him the following summer. The Sun has since also reported on the story, so it seems Leeds are indeed on the hunt for James again. 

Leeds narrowly missed out on a deal for James in 2019, with the ordeal being well-documented in the Amazon Prime documentary Take Us Home.

Victor Orta was even reduced to tears after failing to deliver Marcelo Bielsa his main transfer target. 

But what do Leeds fans think about the possibility of signing James now?

It would be safe to say it is a mixed bag. Plenty of Leeds fans simply do not see the need for his signature, with Jack Harrison and Helder Costa both enjoying promising starts to the season. 

Others believe his form since joining United has left little to be desired and Leeds should be perhaps thankful they never brought him in.

But plenty of Leeds fans are still as keen on the James deal as they were back in 2019, when he was considered the missing link in their hunt for promotion to the Premier League. 

Here is some of the best reaction from Twitter to the news Leeds are looking at James once again.
