Swansea City have confirmed that Leeds United will not sign Daniel James in January.
The Swans ace appeared for a medical at the Elland Road club but could not complete his move to Leeds United.
Swansea City have released an official statement regarding the reintegration of Daniel James in the side after the player failed to complete a move to Leeds United. The player had appeared for a medical at Elland Road and had completed it successfully as well. However, the clubs could not agree on suitable terms for the transfer of the player on loan and the deal could not be completed.
In their statement citing the reason behind the collapsing of the deal, the Welsh side said, “Swansea City can confirm Daniel James will not be joining Leeds United, while skipper Leroy Fer will also be staying at the club.”
They added, “James travelled to Elland Road today (Thursday) to discuss a loan move with a view to a permanent transfer on enhanced terms should the Championship leaders secure promotion to the Premier League. However, the clubs could not agree suitable terms and the 21-year-old will return to Swansea. Wales international James will be welcomed back into the squad with immediate effect with the goal of continuing his rich vein of form. Skipper Fer was linked with a deadline day move to Lille and Aston Villa, but has decided to remain with the Swans to give manager Graham Potter a double boost for the run-in.”
