Man United and Swansea agree £15m deal for Daniel James as Wales winger closes in on Old Trafford move
Manchester United have agreed a £15million deal with Swansea City to sign winger Daniel James.
Sportsmail revealed earlier this month that United had emerged as frontrunners to sign the speedy and exciting 21-year-old Wales international.
And an agreement is now in place between the two clubs as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer begins rebuilding his United squad for the long-term.

He has also broken into the Wales set up during this campaign, playing twice for former United winger Ryan Giggs’ senior side and scoring on his competitive home debut against Slovakia.
James is capable of playing on either flank and through the middle but United have earmarked him for a right-wing role and made specific checks on his suitability for the position during their enquiries.
