Newcastle United have been credited with an interest in Swansea City winger Dan James.
The Magpies are one of two Premier League clubs understood to be keen on the Wales international, the other being Bournemouth.
James has caught the eye in the Championship this term having made his league debut for the Swans back in October.
The diminutive winger has wowed with his electric speed, and contributed five goals and 10 assists.
There is a high chance that James will depart the Liberty Stadium this summer, as his contract is up in a year.
He also almost left to join Leeds United in January, suggesting that his long-term future lies away from his current club.
Newcastle fans react
Some Newcastle fans took to Twitter to give their take on the links to James, who could cost around £10 million.
A few people were obviously excited given the blistering speed James has showcased in the second tier, and some people suggested the club should use Josh Murphy to land him:
Can’t say I’ve seen a lot of him.
But just done a quick “YouTube” scout of him.
Looks intelligent, quick, two-footed and someone who draws a lot of fouls.
He’d win countless free kicks and penalties….someone we severely lack atm.
Him and Almiron in the same team ???

Definitely need other positions first, however, if Dan James could transfer his form in the Championship to the Premier League then he would be a better option than Atsu in my opinion ?

Get him signed !

Maybe Murphy on loan to sweeten it.. They play a good style of football and would replace James.

Sign for cash + Murphy. Good option?

Murphy + £3m would be fair
