Swansea City star Daniel James was denied a move to Leeds United during January when the Welsh outfit pulled the plug on the deal, as confirmed by the BBC.
The Beverley-born player would have naturally jumped at the chance to switch to the Whites and sign for a club chasing promotion.
It wasn’t to be though and James has been forced to get on with playing for the Swans.
James has netted three times and contributed five assists in 29 appearances this season.
On that basis, Leeds were clearly signing him as one for the future, with his statistics hardly glowing.
An alternative to James could be Harry Wilson with The Express recently linking the Liverpool man with a switch to Elland Road.
The 21-year-old is on loan at Derby County where he has scored 12 goals and contributed four assists.
He will return to Anfield this summer but it remains to be seen what the future holds under Jurgen Klopp.
Having conquered the Championship it could be that the German will try and loan him to the Premier League.
If Leeds complete their promotion objective that could give them a strong chance of completing a deal.
James would be a decent signing, of course, but Wilson is perhaps a little more polished and would represent arguably better business for Marcelo Bielsa.
