Daniel James I believe will be an excellent signing for United. His full name is Daniel Owen James and the 21-year-old winger has an abundance of pace. The pacy winger was born in Beverley, England. He is known for his trickery and he can play on either the left or right wing. He’s 5’7″ and was part of Hull City’s academy from 2006-2014 and was part of Swansea City’s academy from 2014-2016. The Welshman made the step up from the Under-23’s to Swansea City’s first team in 2016.

He scored on his debut against Notts County in February 2018 and scored 5 more times in 38 appearances. James made his senior international debut for Wales last November before he netted his first goal in March in a win over Slovakia. He played in 33 games and scored 4 times in 28 starts. James has played on all the national teams from the Wales U-17’s to the senior team.
